Celtic boss Neil Lennon says he has no new injury fears ahead of what he describes as a "huge week" for the club.
With next Tuesday's Champions League knock-out tie with Juventus looming large, Lennon has been assessing his players who have been away on international duty this week.
The 41-year-old has confirmed none of his international stars have picked up fresh injuries, though he is still expected to make changes for Saturday's trip to Inverness.
James Forrest, Georgios Samaras and Emilio Izaguirre will all sit out this weekend's game as they battle to be fit in time for the Juve clash.
Goalkeeper Fraser Forster returns to the squad after three weeks out with a neck injury and may play at the Caledonian Stadium.
"We have no fresh injury worries from the international games," said Lennon. "But James [Forrest] has had two scans this week, the first one was all clear so we are waiting on the results of the second one.
"Whether he is in the squad this weekend or not we don't know yet but we are hoping if we get the all clear he will be in the squad for Tuesday night."
Looking ahead to Tuesday's huge Champions League tie, Lennon added: "This is a huge week for the players and the club.
"We are going to leave it as late as possible with Georgios and Emilio. It is 50-50 at the minute.
"Emilio has probably got a better chance than Samaras although they have worked very hard this week and we have been very aggressive with their rehabilitation. The signs are promising but no guarantees just yet."
