For Celtic, the substitute doorman Scott Bain, and the little used Simunovic and Arzani are still in the infirmary, joined lately by the important Elyounoussi, Bolingoli Mbombo and Hayes and potential holders Elhamed and Bayo. This weekend, the young Frenchman Edouard scored his 10th goal of the season while his attacking counterpart Forrest scored twice and raised his total goals to 8.
