Fourth-placed Hibernian have a full squad available for their clash with Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders Celtic.

Right-back Tim Clancy returned from a troublesome groin problem in Wednesday's 1-0 loss to Ross County and is likely to continue providing there are no ill-effects.

Captain James McPake and midfielder Gary Deegan are also fit to play on following recent injury absences.

James Forrest and Charlie Mulgrew have been ruled out for Celtic.

Winger Forrest has picked up a different, less serious, hamstring injury after coming back from a two-month lay-off while Mulgrew has strained a muscle near his ribs.

Adam Matthews (ankle), Kris Commons (thigh), Anthony Stokes (ankle) and Joe Ledley (groin) remain out.
