Hearts winger David Templeton is a doubt to face the Bhoys after suffering a dead leg in Sunday's Edinburgh derby.

But Suso Santana could be a straight replacement after missing the win at Hibernian amid concerns over his knee problem.

Manager Jim Jefferies has a few other minor concerns following a bruising derby and is still without Andrew Driver (thigh), David Obua (groin) and Lee Wallace (knee).

Thomas Rogne is suspended for the trip to Tynecastle.

The Norwegian defender was sent off in Saturday's 9-0 win over Aberdeen and was handed an automatic one-game ban.

Striker Daryl Murphy has recovered from an ankle injury and is back in contention but James Forrest continues his rehabilitation from the same complaint.

Hearts (from): Kello, Barr, Bouzid, Zaliukas, Stevenson, Palazuelos, Templeton, Elliot, Elliott, Santana, Balogh, Kyle, Jonsson, Mrowiec, J Thomson, C Thomson, Skacel, Novikovas.

Celtic (from): Forster, Cha Du-Ri, Majstorovic, Izaguirre, Ledley, McGinn, Hooiveld, Ki, Juarez, Stokes, Hooper, McCourt, Maloney, Samaras, Mulgrew, Zaluska, Towell, Wilson, Loovens, Murphy.
