Celtic vs Motherwell – Sunday, 3pm

Highlights of the Scottish Premiership match between Dundee United and Celtic

Celtic’s new signing David Turnbull will be in the squad for the match against his former club Motherwell on Sunday.

French striker Odsonne Edouard will again miss out due to a thigh injury, along with Mikey Johnston (calf surgery) and Leigh Griffiths (calf). Midfielder Nir Bitton hopes to shrug off a groin injury.

  • Neil Lennon calls for harmony at Celtic

Motherwell are set to welcome back Jermaine Hylton. The former Solihull Moors striker sat out Thursday’s 5-1 Europa League drubbing of Glentoran after rolling an ankle during the Lanarkshire derby defeat to Hamilton but could now face the champions.

Neil Lennon says he wants his players to settle down into the new season and wants to keep as many as he can

Key stat: Odsonne Edouard has scored more Scottish Premiership goals against Motherwell (nine in nine appearances) than he has versus any other side for Celtic.

Hibernian vs Aberdeen – Sunday, 4.30pm, live on Sky Sports

Highlights of the Scottish Premiership match between Aberdeen and Livingston

Hibernian forward Kevin Nisbet remains a doubt ahead of the Scottish Premiership visit of Aberdeen. The striker missed last weekend’s win over St Johnstone with a hamstring problem and is rated “touch and go” for Sunday’s game.

Head coach Jack Ross has no other injury problems.

Funso Ojo returns from suspension for Aberdeen after missing the midweek victory over NSI Runavik. Craig Bryson missed the Europa League win with a calf injury while Niall McGinn only played eight minutes after shrugging off a foot injury.
