Forrest and Hooper doubtful for Old Firm clash

Forrest and Hooper doubtful for Old Firm clash

James Forrest and Gary Hooper are doubts for Celtic’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Rangers at Ibrox on Sunday.

The Scotland winger looks the least likely to feature with a bruised ankle picked up during last week’s Scottish Communities League Cup final defeat to Kilmarnock at Hampden.

Striker Hooper has a dead leg and like Forrest, he will be assessed in the morning.

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, Rogne, Kelvin Wilson, Mulgrew, Forrest, Brown, Ki, Wanyama, Ledley, Commons, Hooper, Samaras, Stokes, Zaluska, Cha, Loovens, McGeouch, Brozek.
