Charlie Mulgrew and Georgios Samaras return to the Celtic squad.

The Hoops stand-in skipper and the Greece striker have both recovered from ankle problems.

Defender Glenn Loovens (hamstring) and Kris Commons (calf) are out for another week while Mo Bangura is out for another fortnight with his knee complaint.
