Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed midfielder Tom Rogic should be fit for the upcoming match at home to Rangers, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

The Hoops face the Gers at Celtic Park on March 31st, with victory sure to put Celtic on the brink of an eighth league title in a row.

Rangers may be eight points behind in the Scottish Premiership but a win for them would pull them right back into things and ignite a genuine title race.

It is therefore a massive match, with more on the line than many recent derbies, so Celtic will need their best players available and Tom Rogic is certainly in that category.

Giving an injury update after yesterday’s Aberdeen draw, Neil Lennon told The Scottish Sun:

Tom should be fit for the Rangers game. Olivier [Ntcham] is also back doing a bit of running and we hope to have him doing a bit of training next week.

Having those four midfielders out has been difficult. I don’t think Ryan [Christie] will make the Rangers game though. I don’t know how long it is.

It’s a grade two so it will be another few weeks anyway. He will be a doubt for Rangers for sure.

Callum [McGregor] should be alright for Scotland and we are hoping he should be fit for next weekend.

With Celtic’s lack of creativity on full display against the Dons on Saturday it’s clear that we need these more attack minded midfielders back as soon as possible to ignite things in the final third.

Having Rogic back alongside McGregor and Christie would be massive for the Hoops and change the entire way the team performs.

Fingers crossed there are no setbacks and they are all fit and fighting over the coming weeks.
