The Dutchman lost his appeal against a one-match ban and sits out the visit of the Steelmen through suspension, while also nursing a calf injury. Gary Caldwell is likely to partner Stephen McManus in defence.

Scott Brown could feature after visiting a specialist for treatment for an ankle problem but Andreas Hinkel and Danny Fox are likely to remain sidelined through injury after missing the defeat to Rangers in Celtic's last outing.

Celtic (from): Boruc, Naylor, Caddis, Wilson, McManus, Brown, McGeady, Zheng, McCourt, N'Guemo, Samaras, McDonald, Maloney, Caldwell, Crosas, Zaluska, Forrest, Robson.
