    Think Allan's still missing, was watching the highlights of the weekend on Celtic TV and Allan was in the studio, said when asked about his injury he hoped to be back full training by the end of the week so probably not available until the weekend.

    I didnt even know he was injured till I heard him, he said he trained on friday but was probably just a wee light session think it was an ankle problem he said he had.

    Celtic manager Ronny Deila spoke to the media at Lennoxtown ahead of tomorrow's @ScotLeagueCup clash against @RaithRovers_FC


    RD on his birthday: "It was very good. I’m happy just to be 40.

    RD on Carlton Cole: "He’s been good but it’s early. He hasn't trained regularly for a while so he needs some more time."

    RD: "It’s very nice to have him here. He’s a lovely guy and we know he has qualities."

    RD: "He needs more time than that (1 week) but you have to have the eye to see if there’s something there that we can develop."

    RD: "You can see strengths and weaknesses."


    RD: "Games are different and a lot of games we get a lot of crosses like we had at the weekend where we had a team that played deep."

    RD on @RaithRovers_FC : "This is a game that’s important. We’re going to play a good team and we always make one, two, three changes."

    RD on Griffiths: "He’s stiff fin his calf. He had that before the Ajax game but he gets treatment all the time and is available."

    RD: "It’s hard to keep one team going but we’ll play a very strong team."

    RD: "That’s the worst thing – to lose games in the early stages of the cup."

    RD: "I have experience of good and bad things in that matter so we’ll do everything to win tomorrow."







    Saidy Janko also spoke to the media ahead of Wednesday's match v @RaithRovers_FC at Paradise.


    SJ on Dundee victory and Man of the Match award: "It was a good game.

    SJ: "It was a good team performance but there were other great players like Emilio and Tom, who played really well, but I’m honoured."

    SJ: "It was the first time my dad’s side of the family was up so it was good for him to see me as well. It was definitely motivation."

    SJ: "We just did well and played our style. We did well against Ajax too so now we’re trying to win again and play our style."

    SJ on @RaithRovers_FC : "What I’ve learned here is that you can’t under estimate anyone."

    SJ: "You have to give 100% if it’s Europa League or a Championship team, you play your best.

    SJ: "You always get cup ties with clubs in lower divisions but it’s the same game. We’ll play our style.

    Jozo Simunovic won't play tomorrow twisted ankle

    Stefan Johansen and Mikael Lustig could should be ok to play

    Stuart Armstrong won't be involved

    Scott Allan is cup tied.

    Yes. You can tell he's not a natural left back (doesn't seem comfortable attacking), but he'd be an asset in the center.

    I'd keep Efe and Boyata in the centre for this.

    Agreed. Thy are looking solid. No point in taking any more unnecessary risks and splitting them up.
