Driver: Knee injury

Hearts winger Andrew Driver will miss out because of a recurring knee injury.

Manager Paulo Sergio expects a couple of slight knocks to be shaken off ahead of Sunday, leaving him with no new injury worries.

Jamie MacDonald will once again deputise for the injured Marian Kello (shoulder) while Kevin Kyle, Calum Elliot and Gary Glen remain on the sidelines.

Joe Ledley is almost certainly out for Celtic.

The Hoops midfielder came off at half-time in Celtic's Europa League clash against Udinese on Thursday night at Parkhead with a groin injury which will be scanned today.

Left-back Badr El-Kaddouri was cup-tied for the match against the Serie A side and he returns to the squad.

Celtic (from): Zaluska, Matthews, Majstorovic, Loovens, El-Kaddouri, Mulgrew, Mark Wilson, Ki, Kayal, Ledley, Forrest, Wanyama, Bangura, Stokes, Hooper, Samaras, Forster, McCourt, Twardzik.

Hearts (from): MacDonald, Hamill, Grainger, Webster, Zaliukas, Mrowiec, Jonsson, Obua, Black, Stevenson, Taouil, Templeton, Robinson, Skacel, Novikovas, Smith, Elliott, Balogh.
