Charlie Mulgrew is fit again for Celtic after missing the William Hill Scottish Cup defeat by Aberdeen with a calf injury. However, winger James Forrest is doubtful due to ongoing fitness issues. Long-term absentees Mikael Lustig (hip), Beram Kayal (foot) and Steven Mouyokolo (Achilles) remain out.
Tam Scobbie is back from suspension for St Johnstone but fellow defender Frazer Wright drops out with a ban. Alan Mannus has returned to light training ahead of schedule after a broken thumb but is unlikely to be risked. Steven MacLean is also in light training following knee surgery but is not ready to play while Murray Davidson (knee) remains out.
