Hibernian v Celtic preview

Celtic may welcome back Giorgios Samaras when they travel to face Hibernian at Easter Road on Sunday.

The Greece forward has been ruled out of action for the last two weeks due to a hamstring injury but is pushing for a recall to Neil Lennon's side.

Adam Matthews (calf), Mikael Lustig (hip) and Beram Kayal (foot) are all still ruled out for the Scottish Premiership champions, but recent midfield signing Stefan Johansen is included in the squad.

Hibernian manager Terry Butcher must do without defenders Ryan McGivern and Paul Hanlon for the visit of the league leaders.

Midfielder Scott Robertson is also unavailable due to suspension, but Danny Handling will be hoping his midweek goal for the U20s earns him a starting role.
