Hooper picked up in the knock in the pre-season defeat by Blackburn.

Scott Brown will have his ankle problem assessed after missing Scotland's defeat by Sweden and Thomas Rogne is likely to miss out after suffering a thigh injury while playing for Norway Under-21s.

But Israel midfielder Beram Kayal could make his debut and James Forrest has recovered from illness.

Celtic (from): Zaluska, Cha, Mulgrew, Loovens, Hooiveld, O'Dea, Ledley, Juarez, Kayal, Brown, Ki, Maloney, Murphy, Samaras, Rasmussen, Conroy, McCourt, Cervi.
