Celtic v Hibernian

Leaders Celtic meet former manager Neil Lennon's Hibernian at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3.00pm).

But the title-favourites are without skipper Scott Brown [hamstring] and fellow midfielder Stuart Armstrong [calf], while young full-back Anthony Ralston is similarly sidelined with a slight tear in his knee.

Otherwise, defender Erik Sviatchenko [knee] and midfielder Eboue Kouassi [knee] are still on the way back to fitness.

"If we win, I'll not be celebrating," Lennon admitted to SkySports. "It's three points and we move on. If we get beat, I'll be very upset - that's the standards we set for them. There is that mixed emotion for me, really. But I have a job to do. My priority now is Hibs."

Lennon was hopeful of including full-back David Gray and winger Brandon Barker within his travelling squad.

However, defensive pair Liam Fontaine and Darren McGregor remain out of contention for the visitors.
