Kris Commons: Celtic midfielder fit again for Sunday's visit to the Highlands

Sky Bet

Celtic midfielder Kris Commons has recovered from an ankle injury and is available for Sunday's Premier League trip to the Highlands to play Ross County.

Defenders Efe Ambrose and Kelvin Wilson, and midfielder Joe Ledley return to the squad after a short break, but the Hoops will rest five other players this weekend as the team chase a domestic double.

Georgios Samaras, fellow forward Gary Hooper, defenders Charlie Mulgrew and Emilio Izaguirre, are all absent along with goalkeeper Fraser Forster.

Youngsters Paul George, Bahrduin Atajic and Callum McGregor could be promoted from the development squad as Celtic look for their first win at Victoria Park this season.

By contrast the Staggies are unlikely to make any changes as they maintain hopes of securing the last Europa League qualifying berth.

Defender Branislav Micic remains out of action with a dislocated shoulder and goalkeeper Mark Brown is also absent with a fractured hand.
