The Hoops midfielder suffered an ankle injury playing for Israel in midweek.

Skipper Scott Brown returns from suspension but is also struggling with an ankle knock sustained in Scotland's friendly win over Denmark at Hampden on Wednesday night.

Danny Swanson is back in contention for Dundee United's trip to Celtic Park after recovering from a virus.
