John Guidetti returns to the Celtic squad for the trip to Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday.

The Swedish striker, 22, was ineligible for the Hoops' 1-1 Europa League draw with Astra Giurgiu.

Kris Commons (buttock) and James Forrest (hamstring) are back in contention and manager Ronny Deila is hoping Anthony Stokes has recovered from the sore throat which kept him out of the trip to Romania, although winger Derk Boerrigter remains out following knee surgery.

Provisional Celtic squad: Gordon, Lustig, Matthews, Izaguirre, Denayer, Ambrose, Mulgrew, Van Dijk, Kayal, Johansen, Bitton, Brown, Commons, Berget, Scepovic, Wakaso, McGregor, Guidetti, Griffiths, Stokes, Henderson, Zaluska, O'Connell.

Arsenal have been linked with a January swoop for Celtic's beatboxing defender Virgil van Dijk.

Van Dijk, 23, is a Dutch Under-21 international who will surely improve and become a regular for the senior national side.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the Gunners have earmarked a budget of £20m for Arsene Wenger to spend on new players.

We have no idea what J-Guide is rapping about, as our Swedish is very rusty, but his flow is tight. Decent beatboxing from his Celtic team-mate too.
