Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has been speaking to reporters ahead of his side's league game against Ross County, with his comments posted on the Bhoys' official Twitter account.

Among the topics up for discussion was the current situation regarding injuries at Celtic Park and the boss had some good news in that regard.

Celtic have been without last season's top-scorer Moussa Dembele since they began their title defence yet the French forward looks set to return.

"Moussa looks good," Rodgers said. "He's been training now for a few weeks. He'll be in the squad."

The Celtic boss also had an update regarding centre-back Dedryck Boyata, who is yet to feature this season.

"We'll assess over the next 24 hours whether he's going to be available or not," Rodgers added.

Celtic are likely to make some changes for the upcoming match after their struggles against PSG last time out. However if Dembele and Boyata are available they may have to make do with a place on the bench given their lack of game time so far this season.

Celtic are currently top of the Scottish Premiership but they may not be there by the time they kick off on Saturday afternoon, with Old Firm rivals Rangers playing the previous evening and sitting just three points behind the Bhoys as things stand.

The do have an inferior goal-difference but have netted seven times in their last two outings so anything is possible.
