JORGE CLAROS is poised to be restored to the Hibs midfield for Saturday’s trip to Celtic.
The Honduran was left as an unused sub for the Easter Road defeat by Inverness at the weekend as he was deemed jaded following a gruelling week of travelling to represent Honduras in Panama.
However, with Pat Fenlon’s side producing a limp display in his absence, Claros will return to the engine room at Parkhead.
The manager said: “Jorge had a long few days of travelling and he had a long delay in Miami on the way back.
“We just felt he was a little bit fatigued on Friday, but he’ll come back into the reckoning again for Saturday.”
Saturday’s game was the first one the midfielder hadn’t started since the home defeat by St Johnstone in February, when he was restricted to a second-half substitute’s role in the wake of another long trek for an international match against the United States.
Meanwhile, Hibs’ Under-20s face Hearts at Linlithgow’s Prestonfield ground tonight (7pm kick-off).
The two sides are locked together on 28 points in the middle region of the 15-team league, with Hibs ahead on goal difference.
