Hibernian v Celtic preview

Liam Miller is suspended as Hibernian take on his former club.
The midfielder will serve the first of a two-match ban for accumulating disciplinary points, while Hibs are also without Jonathan Grounds after he was recalled from his loan deal by Middlesbrough.
Michael Hart missed last week’s Scottish Cup draw with Ayr but may return from a knock, while Derek Riordan is expected to be fit despite picking up a knock against the Second Division side.
Celtic will have James Forrest available for the game after submitting an appeal over his red card against Hamilton.
But Georgios Samaras (hamstring) remains on the sidelines and fellow striker Gary Hooper (ankle) and Daryl Murphy (calf) are not ready for a comeback despite resuming training.
Glenn Loovens (knee) is also on the sidelines along with long-term injury victim Shaun Maloney (ankle).
Hibs (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, De Graaf, Rankin, Hanlon, Zemmama, Trakys, Stevenson, Galbraith, Dickoh, Duffy, Murray, Smith, Nish, Riordan, Hart.
Celtic (from): Forster, Wilson, Majstorovic, Mulgrew, Rogne, Izaguirre, McCourt, Ledley, Kayal, Forrest, McGinn, Hooiveld, Stokes, Crosas, Zaluska, Juarez, Towell, Ljungberg.
