Celtic v St Mirren preview

Virgil van Dijk returns from suspension for Celtic's Scottish Premiership clash with St Mirren on Saturday.

Midfielder Nir Biton and wide-man James Forrest remain on the sidelines with groin injuries, while Derk Boerrigter has had a scan on his abdomen following a strain and will also miss out.

Emilio Izaguirre and Georgios Samaras have been under the weather the past couple of days and will be assessed ahead of the Celtic Park contest.

Eric Djemba-Djemba is fit to take his place in the St Mirren side in Glasgow's east end.

The midfielder is available after recovering from a groin strain and could make his return alongside Jim Goodwin who has completed a two-match ban.

David van Zanten remains on the sidelines as he recovers from a hernia.
