“Craig’s not fit just now,” Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers said. “We’re just monitoring him between now and the final and we’ll just see how he is; it’s his knee. There’s just a slight pain in it and it’s not worth the risk. He could play tomorrow but we want to ensure we have as many players as fit and strong and available for the final as we can.”
