St Johnstone could be without five players for the visit of Ladbrokes Premiership champions Celtic.

Brian Easton, who is awaiting the results of a scan on an injured knee, is definitely out along with Chris Millar, who pulled up with a groin problem in training.

Murray Davidson is extremely doubtful with a knock, while Stefan Scougall (Achilles) and Michael O''Halloran (ankle) have an outside chance of making the game.

Provisional squad: Mannus, Clark, Foster, Anderson, Tanser, Comrie, Shaughnessy, Davidson, Paton, Wotherspoon, Craig, Davidson, Alston, Thomson, Scougall, O'Halloran, Cummins, MacLean, Johnstone, Gilchrist, McClean.


Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has no new injury worries ahead of Saturday's Ladbrokes Premiership clash with St Johnstone.

Winger Patrick Roberts is sidelined for a few weeks with a hamstring injury which meant he missed the midweek Champions League defeat by Bayern Munich.

Anthony Ralston remains out with a knee problem while fellow defenders Jozo Simunovic and Erik Sviatchenko are still working their way back from respective hamstring and knee injuries.

Provisional squad: Gordon, Lustig, Tierney, Gamboa, Boyata, Bitton, Ntcham, Brown, Armstrong, Rogic, McGregor, Forrest, Sinclair, Hayes, Griffiths, Dembele, Ajer, Edouard, De Vries.
