Moussa Dembele will be back in the Celtic side to face Kilmarnock tomorrow.

The striker missed the matches against Hearts and Partick Thistle but will return to action tomorrow after recovering from a hamstring strain.

Dembele picked up the injury late in the 2-1 win away to Dundee last month but has been nursed back to fitness with treatment throughout the international break.

With just two matches to be played before the Scottish Cup semi-final against Sevco at Hampden the return of the 32 goal striker is important for Rodgers’ plans.

Before his injury Dembele had scored 12 goals in eight matches including back-to-back hat-tricks against St Johnstone and Inverness Caley Thistle.

With Dembele and Tom Rogic back from injury competition for places will be fierce with Rodgers likely to go with close to a full strength side against Kilmarnock who need to win to stand any chance of finishing in the top six.
