Holland international Loovens was banned for Saturday's goalless draw with Motherwell although he had a calf injury, while German full-back Hinkel has missed Celtic's last three matches with a thigh injury.

Danny Fox has been struggling in recent weeks with a dead leg and hamstring tear and is fit again but misses out through illness. Landry N'Guemo, who was left out of the squad for the Motherwell game altogether, is back in the frame.

Kick-off 8.05pm.

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