The Parkhead side submitted the relevant paperwork for a claim of wrongful dismissal yesterday. The case will be heard by the Scottish Football Association's disciplinary tribunal next Thursday.

It means the Dutch centre-half, 22, who is facing a one-game ban, is available for tomorrow's visit of Inverness. If the appeal is dismissed, Van Dijk will instead sit out the match against Kilmarnock on Friday, March 14.
