James McCarthy is named as a substitute following his move from Crystal Palace while Leigh Griffiths surfaces for the first time since being booed by a large number of fans during the friendly against West Ham.
Hearts followed up their win over the hoops with another victory, last week away to St Mirren and go into today’s match on the back of six domestic victories.
Bobby Madden had a poor match when the sides met at Tynecastle, John Beaton is in charge today. Next up for Celtic is the visit of AK Alkmaar on Wednesday followed by St Mirren at home on Saturday.
