Celtic could miss five

Celtic are likely to be without five players against Dundee this weekend.

Midfield pair Scott Brown [hamstring] and Stuart Armstrong [calf] both missed Scotland's World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and Slovenia.

Meanwhile, Bosnian defender Jozo Simunovic [hamstring] was similarly sidelined, with Anthony Ralston [knee] currently still recovering and Australian international Tom Rogic not returning from international duty until Friday.

"Jozo, like Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong, is very unlikely to be involved against Dundee on Saturday but all three should train and hopefully be ready for Bayern Munich," manager Brendan Rodgers told SkySports."[Anthony Ralston] still hasn't trained yet so we are keeping an eye on him.

"We are still waiting on Tom Rogic," he added. "He normally arrives the day before so he should be back tomorrow."
