Lennon waits on key duo
Celtic will be missing James Forrest and Thomas Rogne as they look to seal the SPL title at Kilmarnock this weekend.
Hoops chief Neil Lennon confirmed the news as he looked forward to Saturday's noon kick-off at Rugby Park with his side needing just a point to clinch the championship. Forrest suffered the ankle injury in the League Cup Final defeat against Killie and, while Lennon will give him as long as possible on Friday to prove his fitness, he might not risk him ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final with Hearts in just over a week's time. Rogne's ankle will also be checked on Friday when Lennon will make a decision on his participation in the game. He told Celtic TV: "He (Forrest) is a doubt. We'll have to wait and see how he is on Friday. "Thomas Rogne turned his ankle in the game against St Johnstone and did brilliantly to play on through the pain. "He's been having treatment this week so I won't know if he's going to be fit until Friday." In the absence of Rogne, Charlie Mulgrew will move in to central defence which will pave the way for Emilio Izaguirre to return to the starting XI, while Victor Wanyama and Cha Du-Ri are available again after suspension.
