Aberdeen v Celtic preview
Scott Brown, James Forrest and Charlie Mulgrew have all returned unscathed from mid-week international games and are expected to start for Celtic who travel to Aberdeen for a lunchtime kick-off on Saturday (KO 12:30pm).
The trio were part of a Scotland squad that faced England at Wembley on Wednesday.
This weekend's clash will be followed by a trip to Kazakhstan and a Champions League qualifier against Shakhter Karagandy next mid-week.
Celtic coach Neil Lennon said: "We've got an early kick-off against one of our biggest rivals and then a huge game on Tuesday half-way across Europe. But it is the same every season with international friendlies."
As for Brown, Forrest and Mulgrew, he added: "They look in good spirits and we will assess how they are."
Meanwhile, hosts Aberdeen will be without Barry Robson at Pittodrie.
The influential midfielder - who played the opening game of the season but missed the trip to Motherwell - has undergone exploratory knee surgery.
However, Russell Anderson is available having recovered from a hip injury that forced him off the pitch at Fir Park on Sunday.
Andrew Considine is unlikely to make his first-team comeback following a broken leg, although he did play for the under-20s recently, while Chris Clark remains absent with a knee problem.
