Gary Hooper is back in the Celtic squad after recovering from a metatarsal injury while skipper Shaun Maloney, who withdrew from last week’s game against St Johnstone minutes before kick-off with a stomach bug, should be fit.
New signing Olivier Kapo will not be included while Daryl Murphy and James Forrest continue their recovery from ankle injuries.
Paul Hartley is expected to recover from illness in time to play for Aberdeen against his former club Celtic.
Hartley missed training on Wednesday with flu-like symptoms but trained today, while Yoann Folly recovered from an ankle problem to play in the 2-1 loss at St Mirren last weekend.
Andy Considine (knee) and Nikola Vujadinovic (hamstring) are still struggling and Peter Pawlett (broken toe) and long-term casualty Fraser Fyvie are out.
