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.
