Celtic have no fresh injury concerns in the wake of last week’s thrilling Scottish League Cup final win over Rangers at Hampden.
Ange Postecoglou confirmed to 67 Hail Hail at a media conference today that the Bhoys have all trained well this week and the vast majority of the squad is available to face St Mirren on Sunday.
The only continued absentee will be Benjamin Siegrist, who is still recovering from a calf injury. However, the manager also said he is expected by back in training on Monday, which is great news for the player.
Siegrist hasn’t featured on the bench since December, with Scott Bain taking up deputy duties in support of Joe Hart. The goalie may have had more opportunities to play in cup competitions, as he did earlier in the season, had he been fit so the injury was obviously a blow to him.
Given the strength and depth available to him, it’ll be interesting to see what Postecoglou’s starting eleven on Sunday.
The Bhoys have a mid-week match against Hearts to contend with before a massive trip to Tynecastle next weekend, so whether he freshens things up for this one, or waits until Wednesday, remains to be seen.

Substitutes such as Matt O’Riley, Tomoki Iwata and Hyeongyu Oh all looked sharp coming off the bench against Rangers and eager to impress.
Regardless of the eleven Postecoglou names away to St Mirren, it’s unlikely to look much weaker than the one at Hampden, which is a fantastic place to be in.
All eyes are on that team announcement on Sunday morning!
