Filip Benkovic and Youssouf Mulumbu are both in the Celtic squad for tonight’s game against St Mirren.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers will embark on his first visit to the ground since his arrival at Celtic and there could be debuts for the two players who were brought in on the final day of the transfer window.

Striker Leigh Griffiths has also been declared fit as Celtic prepare to get back to domestic duties.

“Leigh is fine,” said Rodgers. “He trained well these last few days. The new signings are both in the squad for tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, the Celtic manager has welcomed the decision of the SFA to remain at Hampden after agreeing to buy the stadium off of Queen’s Park.

“For me personally it’s good,” he said. “It’s a very good decision.

“I always enjoyed my times there, but it’s not only that. Over many years the game has been there and I think it’s good news for Scottish football.

“It’s good for the traditions of the game because there is just a feel around Hampden which is special. And hopefully over time they can find the funding to bring the stadium up to a standard everyone expects for a modern day stadia.

“There is a uniqueness to it - but I think everyone would ask, right can we improve facilities there? Can we improve it in a way that can benefit the players?

“You have a real special passion up here in Scotland.

“I have seen that going around many grounds as well as at Celtic, so to have the chance to use that as a national team in a more compact stadium with a passionate support would definitely help.”
