Motherwell left-back Stevie Hammell (ankle) is a major doubt but Steve Jennings has recovered from the back spasm that forced him out of the victory at Inverness.

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall revealed he had a "couple of doubts" for the clash but would make a decision nearer kick-off.

Bob McHugh (ankle), Lee Hollis (hip) and Steven Saunders (Achilles) remain on the sidelines.

Glenn Loovens is out for Celtic.

The Dutch defender suffered a recurrence of a hamstring complaint in last night's Europa League Group I win over Rennes.

Thomas Rogne was ineligible for the game against the French club while Badr El-Kaddouri was cup-tied and both return.

Joe Ledley (calf) and Ki Sung-yueng (illness) are doubts.

Motherwell (from): Randolph, Hateley, Clancy, Hutchinson, Craigan, Jennings, Lasley, Law, Forbes, Murphy, Humphrey, Higdon, Daley, Page, Carswell, Smith, Halsman, Bradley.

Celtic (from): Forster, Kayal, El-Kaddouri, Rogne, McCourt, Matthews, Ki, Ledley, Wanyama, Stokes, Hooper, Samaras, Forrest, Majstorovic, Zaluska, Cha, Commons, Fraser, George, Chalmers, McGregor.
