Team news for Saturday's Scottish Premiership clash between Celtic and Aberdeen.

Celtic could be without Greek striker Georgios Samaras for Saturday's Scottish Premiership match against Aberdeen after he was stuck low by illness.

Right-back Mikael Lustig, however, hopes to step up his recovery from a recent hip operation by starting his first match in more than four months after he was given a 20-minute run out in the 6-0 thrashing of Inverness last week.

Midfielder Nir Biton and wide man James Forrest remain out with groin injuries, along with winger Derk Boerrigter, who has an abdominal problem.

Aberdeen are without defender Andrew Considine after he suffered a hamstring injury that rules him out for the rest of the season.

Full-back Joe Shaughnessy (knee) is also a doubt for Saturday's match while manager Derek McInnes is hopeful Peter Pawlett will overcome a problem with his back/hamstring.

Midfielder Nicky Low remains on the sidelines with a broken toe.
