It has been good to see Ryan Christie and Tom Rogic return to the fray with Celtic in the past week.

Rogic is a big game player – his is a strong lad, he gets you up the pitch, he is a real thoroughbred.

He has needed game time to get his sharpness back and has received that against Rangers and Livingston at the weekend there.

Christie, too, has featured against St Mirren and Livingston in the last seven days and scored in Paisley.

Their return will help Celtic in their William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final tie against Aberdeen at Hampden on Sunday.

Aberdeen have shown good form of late. They have beaten Rangers three times in Glasgow this season, knocked them out of both cups and drawn with Celtic at Parkhead as well. They have also been at Hampden before.

If they concentrate on playing with the same mentality as they had against Rangers then Celtic will have a game on their hands.
