Team news and statistics for the weekend's action in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier League.

Skipper Scott Brown and defender Mikael Lustig will be missing again for Celtic. Brown has seen a specialist about his abductor problem and will discover on Monday if he requires surgery while Lustig is out with a thigh injury. Greece striker Georgios Samaras is back after recovering from hamstring trouble but defender Charlie Mulgrew is a doubt with a glute problem.
Dundee defender Davide Grassi is back in training but Sunday's game may come too soon following his recovery from a knee injury. The visitors are still without Stephen O'Donnell (knee), Mark Kerr (knee), Jamie McCluskey (Achilles) and Carl Finnigan (knee).

United manager Jackie McNamara names an unchanged squad, with Gavin Gunning - who was due to undergo knee surgery - the only absentee. Manager Jackie McNamara has the option of bringing Barry Douglas back into the team and moving Jon Daly up front after the striker played at centre-back in Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Motherwell.
Former Hibernian player Kevin Thomson is training with the club but boss Pat Fenlon has no intention of signing up the free agent to face Dundee United. Fenlon will be able to call upon midfielder Gary Deegan following suspension. Defender Tim Clancy is Fenlon's only injury concern as he continues his recovery from a hamstring tear.
