Celtic want capital return

Celtic are in early lunchtime action when visiting troubled Hearts at Tynecastle on Saturday (kick-off 12.30pm).

"I don't want anyone saving themselves for Wednesday, if I see that I'll re-think my team" - Neil Lennon
The visitors are without defender Steven Mouyokolo after undergoing surgery on a ruptured Achilles. Winger James Forrest is similarly missing with a leg injury.

Manager Neil Lennon could though hand a debut to striker Teemu Pukki but fellow newcomer Nir Biton won't come into consideration until the midweek Champions League visit to AC Milan. Otherwise Welsh international midfielder Joe Ledley [hip] requires a late fitness test.

"We'll go strong. I want to win the game, it's always hard to pick up after international break, we've only seen them for one day," Lennon told BBC Scotland. "We didn't cope so well with games after Champions League last year but that's something we want to work on. I don't want anyone saving themselves for Wednesday, if I see that I'll re-think my team."

Hearts are boosted by Jamie Hamill's availability following his recent sending-off against Inverness Caledonian Thistle being overturned. Defenders Danny Wilson and Kevin McHattie are also back from suspension but Ryan Stevenson is still ruled out through injury.
