The Hoops will be taking on their arch-rivals Rangers this weekend at Park Head.

Ahead of this massive clash, Rogic hasn’t appeared for the training while Bitton is still caught up with his recovery at Lennox town.

Rogic who hasn’t featured for the Hoops in 2019 returned to the training days ago.

Following his return, the Hoops fans were delighted and wanted him to see in the playing 11 against the Light Blues.

Now his absence in today’s training infers that he is a doubter for the Sunday clash.

Neil Lennon, the makeshift manager said (h/t The Sun)

“Olivier’s back training day in day out now and Tom Rogic is back on the grass and he’s had a couple of really good days training.

“Hopefully the both of those two will be in contention for the squad at the weekend as well which is great.”

Kieren Tierney who missed out the international break due to a knock in the Calf is also undergoing a speedy recovery to feature in the derby.

The left-back has been impressive for the Park Head side this season providing four assists in more than 20 appearances.

The Hoops fans were also happy to hear about the return of Leigh Griffiths. The Scots striker was provided with a long lay-off by the club back in December to recover from his personal issues.
