Celtic will look to extend the gap at the top of the table further when they host Dundee at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Bhoys currently sit at the summit of the Scottish Premiership table but will be wary of the challenge of the division’s bottom side.
With Rangers not in action until Sunday, Brendan Rodgers will want to see his side take full advantage, although some bad news has emerged before the game.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, via Twitter, the manager revealed that Odsonne Edouard would not be available for the game.

The French striker continues to remain on the sidelines, although Rodgers is hopeful that he will be in contention to return next week.
However, the Hoops have some good news heading into the game, with Ryan Christie able to play a role in the match.
Edouard’s absence will be a huge blow to Celtic on Saturday afternoon as they prepare for their game against Dundee.
The French striker has hit eight goals in his 16 Scottish Premiership matches this season and with the absence of Leigh Griffiths, the Bhoys find themselves severely lacking up top.
However, with Christie thought to be available and with Dundee sitting at the bottom of the table, there will be a confidence that the Hoops can get the job done at Celtic Park.
