Celtic have appealed Virgil van Dijk's red card at Aberdeen in midweek, leaving him free to play in the Scottish Premiership clash against Inverness at Parkhead on Saturday.

The Dutch defender was dismissed by referee Craig Thomson after bringing down Peter Pawlett on the edge of the box during the 2-1 defeat at Pittodrie on Tuesday night but manager Neil Lennon was unhappy enough to contest the decision.

Stefan Johansen is back in the squad after recovering from an ankle knock while long-term absentees Mikael Lustig (hip), Beram Kayal (foot) and Steven Mouyokolo (Achilles) remain unavailable.

Inverness manager John Hughes has a fully-fit squad.

The Caley Thistle boss has a squad high on confidence after their 3-0 win over Highland rivals Ross County on Tuesday.

But his men face a tough task avoiding a backlash as they come up against a Hoops side looking to avenge their first Scottish Premiership defeat of the season after losing 2-1 at Aberdeen.
