SCOTTISH PREMIER BRIEFING
Sunday, April 29
Celtic v Rangers
Georgios Samaras, Scott Brown, Kelvin Wilson and Glenn Loovens return to the Celtic squad. Neil Lennon chose to rest some of his star players for the trip to Motherwell last week but will bring them back for the last Old Firm game of the season. Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-yueng (hamstring) and James Forrest (ankle) are out but right-back Adam Matthews returns from illness and Beram Kayal, who has recovered fully from his ankle injury, could be included in the squad.
Rangers could be boosted by the return of Kirk Broadfoot and Jamie Ness. Both players are back in training now that full-back Broadfoot has recovered from a knee problem and midfielder Ness has overcome a number of injuries. However, striker Kyle Lafferty will miss out after being handed a two-week club suspension.

St Mirren v Hibernian
St Mirren have a full squad for visit of Hibernian. Left-back Jeroen Tesselaar returns after missing the 4-4 draw against Dunfermline through suspension. David Barron comes back into contention after resting his knee injury.
Garry O'Connor's foot injury is not as bad as first feared so the Hibernian striker could be included in the squad. Manager Pat Fenlon may not risk the striker, with Eoin Doyle and Roy O'Donovan possible starters as Hibs seek to move closer to ensuring their SPL survival. Winger Tom Soares (Achilles) is available again, while winger Danny Galbraith (groin) and goalkeeper Graham Stack (thigh) are out.
