SCOTT SINCLAIR is again missing from Neil Lennon’s provisional squad for tonight’s Premiership game against Hearts at Tynecastle.
The 30-year-old attacker, who is out of contract in June, made his first competitive start of the season in the 2-0 Europa League Group E loss to Cluj in Romania last week.
However, the Englishman, who cost £4.5million when he was signed by Brendan Rodgers from Aston Villa in August 2016, failed to make the pool of players for the 2-0 win over Hibs on Sunday and it looks as though he will sit out the match against their capital rivals.
Ryan Christie, though, has the chance of being included, but Mohamed Elyounoussi will miss out again after suffering a recurrence of a foot injury in the first-half of the Betfred League Cup win earlier this month.
Boss Lennon will make late decisions on Jonny Hayes and Mikey Johnston after they also missed the weekend triumph over the Easter Road men.
Provisional squad: Forster, Frimpong, Bauer, Hayes, Bolingoli, Taylor, Ajer, Jullien, Bitton, Brown, McGregor, Christie, Rogic, Ntcham, Forrest, Johnston, Edouard, Bayo, Griffiths, Morgan, Gordon.
