Celtic return to action following their winter break in Dubai with a home Scottish Cup tie against bottom of the Championship side Brechin on Saturday.
Sadly for Brendan Rodgers, he will be unable to call on the services of a host of players as the Hoops are going through an injury crisis.
There will be no first-team debut for Marvin Compper, who is out for a month with a calf injury, whilst Leigh Griffiths and Stuart Armstrong are both out as well.
On the plus side, there should be one change from the goalless draw in the Glasgow derby with Rangers with midfielder Olivier Ntcham reclaiming his place in the side after he was inexplicably dropped to the best.
