STEFAN SCEPOVIC is standing by to lead the Celtic attack in tomorrow afternoon’s Premiership game against Partick Thistle at Firhill.
Leigh Griffiths, who was a second-half substitute in the 0-0 Champions League qualifying draw with Qarabag in Azerbaijan during the week, is doubtful with a calf strain.
Nadir Ciftci, of course, is already sidelined as he sits out his six-game domestic ban.
If Griffiths fails to make it, boss Ronny Deila may turn to Serb Scepovic although he still has Anthony Stokes in reserve.
Skipper Scott Brown has a hamstring twinge and will be given every opportunity to make the 12.30pm kick-off.
Charlie Mulgrew is almost certainly out after feeling tightness in his groin as he strives to regain fitness following a knee injury.
Thistle’s new recruit Mathias Pogba – brother of Juventus’ Paul – will not start.
The former Wrexham, Crewe and Crawley striker arrived in Glasgow this week and manager Alan Archibald says the 24-year-old will be in the squad, but he is not fit enough to start.
