McGregor has been absent since the defeat to Valencia, and could now be in contention to face Dundee this weekend.

Neil Lennon said (via official Twitter): “He’s back in training and could feature on Sunday. its a great boost for the team.”

Whether they will make the weekend clash with Dundee remains to be seen – both have been out a while and could be lacking match fitness.

Tom Rogic and Ryan Christie are still ‘a little bit away’ according to Lennon.

Park to return?

Former Celtic scout John Park could return to the club to replace head of recruitment Lee Congerton.

The Express have suggested (via The Scottish Sun) he could come back if Congerton joins up with Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City.

Park, who left the club in 2016 after a nine-year stint, was responsible for bringing the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Victor Wanyama to Parkhead before they were sold to Southampton.
