Glenn Loovens, Charlie Mulgrew and Mohamed Bangura remain on the sidelines for Celtic’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Dunfermline at Parkhead tomorrow night but have shown signs of progress.

Defenders Loovens and Mulgrew have been out with hamstring injuries and striker Bangura has struggled with a knee complaint but while all three have joined in training in the last couple of days, it might be the weekend game against St Mirren before they come back into contention.

Stopper Thomas Rogne is still out with a hamstring injury which means Victor Wanyama is likely to remain in defence.

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, El Kaddouri, McCourt, Majstorovic, Ledley, Kayal, Wanyama, Forrest, Commons, Stokes, Samaras, Ki, Hooper, Zaluska, Fraser, McGeouch, Twardzik.
