Mikael Lustig could be out of next week’s game against Rangers at Ibrox following last night’s league postponement against Dundee.

The Swedish defender was due to serve a one-game ban following his dismissal against Aberdeen at Pittodrie but the call-off due to the extreme weather conditions yesterday means that he will be out of the trip to Ibrox.

With Brendan Rodgers’ side facing Morton on Scottish Cup duty on Saturday at lunchtime, Lustig’s suspension will be for the next league game.

The only way he would be available to play is if Celtic re-arrange their game against Dundee for next midweek, a week that is currently free of any fixtures.

One of the more experienced performers in the Hoops squad, Lustig’s absence would be a miss for Rodgers but the Celtic manager is confident that he has other options to call upon.

With Dedryck Boyata expected to be fit for the trip to Ibrox and Marvin Compper and Patrick Roberts getting back to fitness, there are at least other options to consider.

“It was just unfortunate for him that he got sent off,” said Rodgers. “Mika is a great servant for me. He has put himself out there. He has struggled for injuries earlier but since I’ve come in, the game time he has played has been fantastic.

“He was unfortunate on Sunday but it’s another chance for someone else to come in. That’s what happens when you get a red card.”
