James Forrest returns from suspension for Celtic.

Daniel Majstorovic has been ruled out for up to three weeks with a hamstring strain picked up during the first half of Saturday's 1-0 defeat of Aberdeen leaving Thomas Rogne as the only recognised central defender available.

Striker Georgios Samaras is still out with a hamstring injury.

Kevin Kyle remains a doubt as Hearts bid to extend their 11-match unbeaten away run against leaders Celtic.

Striker Kyle missed last Saturday's 1-0 win over Rangers due to a groin injury and may be absent again, but Rudi Skacel is poised to continue in midfield after showing no ill-effects following a recent calf problem.

Suso Santana is poised to be on the substitutes' bench again following his knee injury, but Calum Elliot remains doubtful and Andrew Driver (thigh) is nearing a return.

Celtic (from): Forster, Wilson, Mulgrew, Rogne, Izaguirre, McCourt, Ljungberg, Brown, Kayal, Forrest, Ledley, McGinn, Stokes, Hooper, Murphy, Zaluska, Carey, Towell.

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