Celtic will assess the fitness of four key players ahead of what will be a huge test for the Bhoys.

All four missed Saturday's 5-0 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over St Mirren in Paisley.

Celtic (from): Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Ambrose, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Brown, Ledley, Kayal, Forrest, Commons, Samaras, Wanyama, McCourt, Miku, Watt, Zaluska, Chalmers.
