The top two sides meet at Celtic Park as the hosts tackle second-placed Aberdeen on Saturday afternoon.

"It will be a stern test as Aberdeen will be confident as they have two straight wins now against us" - Johan Mjallby
Celtic could be without Greek striker Georgios Samaras due to illness against a team who have beaten them in their last two meetings.

"It will be a stern test as Aberdeen will be confident as they have two straight wins now against us," assistant manager Johan Mjallby told BBC Scotland. "But it's important for us to show we are the best team in Scotland.

"They deserved to win the Cup game. We did not show up for that game and at the time we didn't know why because we were on a good run," he continued. "Champions should be consistent and hungry and I want to finish my time here as assistant manager with three wins."

Dons defender Andrew Considine is out for the rest of the season with hamstring trouble while full-back Joe Shaughnessy is doubtful. Forward Peter Pawlett has though recovered.
