Beram Kayal is a major doubt for Celtic.

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. Left-back Emilio Izaguirre is out with a broken ankle but midfielder Kris Commons has recovered from a foot injury which kept him out of the Scotland game.

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

But midfielder Gary Mackay-Steven (ankle) is doubtful.

Scott Severin is out for the season after undergoing surgery on a triple leg break.
