Celtic have confirmed Kristoffer Ajer and Mohamed Elyounoussi can face Hibernian on Saturday despite a Norway team-mate contracting Covid-19.

The pair were found not to be close contacts of Omar Elabdellaoui, whose positive test led to the cancellation of Norway's recent match in Romania.

Both players are back in Scotland and have each tested negative three times.

They are clear to "continue training with the squad and taking part in matches", say Celtic.

Neil Lennon's side resume their Scottish Premiership campaign at Easter Road on Saturday.
