The Celtic defender was included after team-mate Kieran Tierney was ruled out with a calf problem.

The news was confirmed by manager Brendan Rodgers after the left-back was omitted from the squad for the Parkhead side’s 0-0 draw with Motherwell on Sunday afternoon.

Rangers defender Russell Martin also drops out. The experienced centre-back returned to the starting XI this past weekend after missing the 3-2 Old Firm derby defeat with a back injury.
