Callum McGregor and Kyogo Furuhashi haven’t suffered any reaction to last night’s match against Bayer Leverkusen.
When the Celtic side was announced there was a mix of shock and excitement from fans that the club captain and top scorer were included to face the Germans.
For 25 minutes last night Celtic looked the better side but after going behind the roof fell in with two goals in each half from their clinical opponents.
McGregor and Kyogo were substituted midway through the second half but reported to adverse effects and will be on the team-sheet at Aberdeen on Sunday.

The pleasing thing is Kyogo and Cal got through it really well. That was really pleasing for us. We wanted to limit their time because they’ve been out, but they’ve pulled through really well.
Everyone else is obviously a bit tired, and a little battered and bruised, physically and emotionally, but they’re all ready to go for Sunday and we’ll have them all available.
Celtic also gave a debut to Giorgos Giakoumakis last night to give a little depth to their striking options.
Boli Bolingoli could be in contention for Sunday’s match after being left out of the squad registered with UEFA for the Europa League. The Belgian came in from the cold to play against Livingston following the opening Europa League tie away to Real Betis.
