Tom Rogic (calf), Dylan McGeouch (ankle) and James Forrest (hamstring) are doubts while Georgios Samaras and Nir Biton have both missed training in the last two days with a virus.

Adam Matthews has returned to training following shoulder surgery but will not be involved while Beram Kayal (foot) and Steven Mouyokolo (Achilles) remain out.

Motherwell boss Stuart McCall has been forced to rule out four members of his squad for Friday night's visit of Celtic - but does at least welcome three other players back from injury.

Bob McHugh suffered a leg knock in the shock William Hill Scottish Cup defeat to Albion Rovers on Saturday, while Zaine Francis-Angol (groin), Lee Erwin (knee) and goalkeeper Lee Hollis (ankle) are also unavailable.

However, he is boosted by the return of wide men Iain Vigurs (thigh) and Lionel Ainsworth (calf), as well as full-back Simon Ramsden (hamstring), for the Scottish Premiership clash.
