Aberdeen striker Nick Blackman returns as the Dons face Celtic for the second time in four days.

The on-loan Blackburn striker was cup-tied for Saturday's 4-1 Co-operative Insurance cup semi-final defeat.

Sone Aluko is expected to miss out again as he continues to receive treatment for an Achilles injury.

Thomas Rogne is out for the Hoops.

The defender came off in the second half of Saturday's Co-operative Insurance Cup semi-final win over the Dons at Hampden with a calf injury which he has failed to shrug off.

Manager Neil Lennon has no natural centre backs available and if he fails to sign one before the transfer window closes, full-backs Mark Wilson and Charlie Mulgrew will be asked to play in central defence.

Aberdeen (from): Langfield, Diamond, Considine, McArdle, Vujadinovic, Milsom, Hartley, Jack, Vernon, Magennis, Maguire, Young, McNamee, Howard, Paton, Pawlett, Robertson, Blackman.

Celtic (from): Forster, Wilson, Mulgrew, Juarez, Izaguirre, Brown, Ledley, Kayal, McCourt, Commons, Stokes, Murphy, Hooper, Ljungberg, McGinn, Zaluska, Crosas, Carey.

Copa del Rey: Luis Enrique says Neymar had to be substituted against Atletico Madrid to prevent injury

Luis Enrique says he had to substitute Neymar to prevent him from being injured in an ugly cup tie with Atletico.

Mail Box

But Biting Doesn't Hurt Like Stamping...

There are Liverpool fans arguing that Luis Suarez is nowhere near Diego Costa's sh*t-house league but we have plenty of love for the agitator too. Oh and Spurs...

Erm... Balotelli To QPR..?

It's an afternoon Mailbox that offers the reaction to the reaction, with a defence for Diego Costa offered, and Balotelli mooted to move to QPR. Plus a silly idea about the Mails...
