Celtic will host Motherwell at Celtic Park on Wednesday night as they look to try and go back top of the Scottish Premiership table.
The Bhoys have games in hand over their rivals and will look to take full advantage of them to lift themselves back to the summit.
With Rangers in action as well on Wednesday, Brendan Rodgers will want to see his team pick up the win against Motherwell and it appears as though he has some excellent news ahead of the game.
According to the club’s official Twitter account, he has revealed that Ryan Christie could be available for the game.

Rodgers stated that the midfielder is back running and has been pushing himself to get back on the pitch.
Leigh Griffiths will remain absent from the game as he continues to take a break away from football.
Having Christie potentially available will be huge news for Rodgers and Celtic.
The midfielder has proven to be the difference in a number of games this season and has been an impressive member of the team that has seen the likes of Scott Brown struggle for a place.
With the matches starting to come thick and fast, Rodgers will also be delighted to have Christie back available for the festive run in.
