The former Rangers man was sent off in the 1-0 defeat against Dundee at Dens Park on 27 April but is back in contention for the fifth and final Edinburgh derby of the campaign.

Hearts have yet to toast a victory over their old rivals this season - with three draws and one defeat in the four meetings thus far.

Danny Wilson is struggling with a thigh injury and faces a late test, while striker Michael Ngoo has recovered from a shoulder problem and is in the squad.

Hibernian boss Pat Fenlon insists he will not be tempted to rest players with the Scottish Cup final just a fortnight away.

"I know what the derby means to everyone," he told The Scotsman. "We have done all right against Hearts this year so we would obviously like to keep that going. Our record over there isn't fantastic so we would like to change that with a win.

"That's the priority at the moment. The Cup final is not really in my thoughts. It will take care of itself when the day comes. We will pick a team that I feel can win the game."

Fenlon will check on the fitness of Ryan McGivern - who was forced out of the abandoned game against Kilmarnock with a knee injury - and Tim Clancy before naming his side.

PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
