Dundee midfielder Paul McGowan will miss the visit of Celtic because of the curfew he was placed under following his recent conviction for assaulting a police officer.

Defender Gary Irvine is likely to still miss out against the Scottish Premiership leaders due to a knee injury.

Midfielder Gary Harkins (shin) and Luka Tankulic (hamstring) will both face fitness checks following their recent injuries.
