Neil Lennon has confirmed Vakoun Bayou and Marian Shved have both returned to training this week.

Bayou has been missing since early in pre-season when he felt a twinge in his hamstring.

Fears for his fitness came after he missed the final three months of his debut season in Glasgow with a ruptured hamstring and Celts didn't fancy taking a risk with the striker.

Meanwhile Shved, 22, has been out of action after picking up a knock in training before the Hoops played Sarajevo in their opening Champions League qualifier.

However Lennon has revealed the pair are back on the training pitch and joining in with the first-team - even if this week's clash with Nomme Kalju may prove a bit too early to throw them into competition.

He said: "Bayo and Shved are back training. 

"Tomorrow might be too soon for them, but they’re getting towards full fitness."

Mikey Johnston is also back in training after hobbling off in the first-leg of the Sarajevo tie.
