CELTIC boss Brendan Rodgers received a treble boost as he prepared his team for Sunday’s Scottish Cup confrontation against Albion Rovers.
Aussie midfielder Tom Rogic is available for the first time since December 17 when he suffered an ankle injury during the 2-1 victory against Dundee.
Hoops striker Leigh Griffiths has already recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him out of the 2-1 win at Ibrox on Hogmanay.
And, of course, the Irishman has already admitted he would have no problem pitching in Kieran Tierney after the teenager’s enforced long-term absence with an ankle and shoulder injury.
Speaking of the plastic pitch at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium, Rodgers said: “Kieran’s a young man – he can play on anything.”
The Hoops, under Ronny Deila, played on the surface in the Scottish Cup last year when they faced East Kilbride.
Goals from Griffiths, one of 40 in the last campaign, and Colin Kazim-Richards, one of only two for the club before his summer departure, gave the Hoops a 2-0 triumph.

Celtic are hoping to win the Scottish Cup for a record 37th occasion and for the first time since 2013 when they defeated current holders Hibs in the Final.

The intriguing tie, with a 3pm kick-off, will be followed by the draw for the fifth round.
