Celtic skipper Scott Brown returns from an ankle problem for the game against Hibs.

Emilio Izaguirre misses out with a thigh injury sustained in the 6-0 Co-operative Insurance Cup win over Inverness in midweek.

Paddy McCourt (shoulder), James Forrest, (ankle) and Jos Hooiveld (knock) are also out.

Defender Sol Bamba is a doubt as Hibernian seek a return to winning ways.

Ian Murray (hip/groin), Darryl Duffy (metatarsal), Merouane Zemmama (knee) and goalkeeper Graham Stack (back) remain out.
