Jozo Simunovic is a major injury doubt for Celtic’s match with Hibs tomorrow.

The 24-year-old has played in the last three matches but picked up a knock late on in the 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Hampden on Sunday.

Filip Benkovic is likely to come in for Simunovic but another central defensive injury will be a cause for concern.

Dedryck Boyata isn’t expected to play again after tearing his hamstring during the March 31 with Jack Hendry suffering a similar fate in a midweek Reserve League match.

With emergency defender Nir Bitton also injured Neil Lennon is running out of options for central defence.

Kieran Tierney’s fitness is also causing concern with the club looking to minimise his game time before getting a full month off after the Scottish Cup Final against Hearts.

Celtic need a maximum of four points to clinch the SPFL title but if Hearts take anything from today’s visit from Steven Gerrard’s club a win for Celtic tomorrow would confirm eight-in-a-row.
