The Japan international hobbled off against St Johnstone in their Tennent's Scottish Cup semi-final clash last week, but is ready to help the Hoops fight for the three points needed to retain the title.

Provisional squad: Boruc, Caldwell, Pressley, Naylor, O'Dea, Nakamura, Gravesen, Lennon, Hartley, McGeady, Riordan, Miller, Vennegoor of Hesselink, Jarosik, Brown, Beattie, Perrier Doumbe, Bjarnason.
