SCOTTISH PREMIER BRIEFING
Celtic (1) v St Johnstone (4)
Defender Cha Du-ri and midfielder Victor Wanyama are suspended for Celtic's clash with St Johnstone after being sent off in last week's Old Firm derby defeat by Rangers at Ibrox. Winger James Forrest, who missed the trip to Govan with a bruised ankle, remains a doubt.
St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas has yet to decide whether to include new signing Derek Riordan in the squad against Celtic after agreeing a short-term contract until the end of the season. Midfielder Murray Davidson is set to miss the trip to Parkhead with a knee injury, while the Perth side will make a late decision on left-back Callum Davidson, who is still struggling with a hamstring problem.
