Celtic have been given a potentially huge boost ahead of Sunday’s League Cup final after Odsonne Edouard, Mohamed Elyounoussi, Vakoun Bayo and Boli Bolingoli all returned to training on Tuesday.
Neil Lennon had previously suggested that the quartet and Jonny Hayes were all doubts for the clash with Rangers, however the aforementioned four returned to training on Tuesday.
Furthermore, Lennon revealed that Eddy, Boli, Elyounoussi and Hayes could all be match-fit for the final on Sunday.

READ CELTIC VERDICT
Having all four players return to training this early in the week will come as a significant boost for Celtic, as will Hayes’ return.
They will all miss the clash with Hamilton on Wednesday, but are likely to have returned to full fitness in time to make Sunday’s final with Rangers.
Eddy has missed the last two games with a “niggle,” while Elyounoussi suffered an injury to his ankle prior to the last international break and Bayo has been out for six weeks with a knee problem.
Hayes meanwhile dislocated his shoulder during the 4-0 win over Livingston, and Boli has not featured since the League Cup semi-final win over Hibernian.
