Kieran Tierney is expecting to be fit enough to feature in the Glasgow Derby, according to reports.
As per claims from the Daily Mail, as cited on Edinburgh News, Tierney is set to declare himself fit, despite the injury concerns that surrounded him during the international break.
He returned home early from Scotland duty after being ruled out of the game against San Marino.
Tierney has been struggling with a groin problem, but clearly remains eager to play in what could be a crucial derby game for the Hoops.
Having Tierney available will certainly come as a huge boost for the club, as they look to seal their eighth consecutive league title.
Should Tierney not make it in time for the Derby, Emilio Izaguirre has confirmed he is fit and ready to return for the Hoops. Despite not impressing consistently this season, he is an experienced squad member who can provide back-up to Tierney.
