Republic of Ireland defender Shane Duffy is set to be unavailable for Celtic's Scottish Premiership clash with Hibernian on Monday.

Duffy left the club's Dubai training camp early this week to deal with a personal matter.

Fellow defender Nir Bitton will also be abent as he serves a suspension for the straight red he received in the Glasgow derby defeat to Rangers earler this month.

James Forrest remains unavailable but has stepped up his rehab work following ankle surgery.

Hibernian will again be without goalkeeper Ofir Marciano (calf).

But they have filled the void left by Marciano’s injury and Dillon Barnes’ return to QPR with new loan signing Matt Macey and Kevin Dabrowski, who was recalled from Dumbarton.

Kyle Magennis (hamstring) and Sean Mackie (thigh) remain out while Scott Allan is building up his fitness after illness.
