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.
