Gary Hooper and Kris Commons are back in contention for Celtic having recovered from groin and thigh injuries respectively.

Winger James Forrest has a viral problem and will be assessed while striker Mo Bangura (knee) is still out.

United have Robbie Neilson available again after he missed last week's 6-2 Scottish Cup win at Airdrie.

Long-term absentee Scott Severin, who is recovering from a broken leg, remains sidelined, however, while midfielder Danny Swanson is also unlikely to feature as he continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury.


Celtic (from): Forster, Cha, Kelvin Wilson, Mulgrew, Rogne, McGeough, Izaguirre, Brown, Ki, Ledley, Forrest, Wanyama, Commons, Hooper, McCourt, Samaras, Twardzik, Stokes, Zaluska, Matthews.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Douglas, Dixon, Dillon, Neilson, Watson, Kenneth, Gunning, Smith, Allan, Flood, Rankin, Armstrong, Robertson, Mackay-Steven, Hilson, Dow, Russell, Daly, Dalle Valle, Banks.
