Celtic have recalled Ross Doohan and Scott Robertson from their loan spells at Ross County and Gillingham.
Back-up keeper Doohan was on the bench for Ross County against Livingston on Sunday before making his way to Celtic where he was among the substitutes for the 1-1 draw with Hibs. The Scotland u-21 keeper made five appearances for County but lost his place after being left out of their Betfred Cup win at Celtic’s expense.
Robertson started 14 matches for Gillingham and made five substitute appearances, playing the first 45 minutes of Saturday’s home defeat from Burton Town.

With Scott Bain and Vasilis Barkas missing from last night’s squad Doohan has moved from fourth to second choice keeper with Conor Hazard returned to favour last night after sitting out two matches.
Celtic’s midfield was recognisable last night but beyond the four that started only Ewan Henderson offered another option but last night was only his second appearance of the season.
With his experiences at Gillingham, Robertson is ready to go straight into the action if Gavin Strachan wants to alter his midfield.
