The Hoops have been dealing with the disappointment of losing 3-0 to Zenit last night, knocking them out of the Europa League without much of a battle.
Brendan Rodgers’ men really struggled on the night, failing to muster any real opportunities to get back into a game that Zenit dominated.
But Rodgers, the squad and the fans have now got some good news with the return of Rodgers from injury tonight.
He’s not played for the first team since the end of November – with a hamstring injury picked up in a 1-1 draw with Motherwell ruling him out.
And he continued his recovery by playing an hour in a development team game against Morton tonight:
Celtic Line-Up: Mullen, Duffy, Church, Welsh, Deas (Capt.), Bell, McInroy, Roberts, Henderson, Caffrey & Aitchison (4-2-3-1)

That news will be well received by supporters, with many believing they don’t look like the same team without Roberts in it.
Now they’ll be eyeing his return to Rodgers’ squad, with big games coming thick and fast.
Sunday’s match against Aberdeen will come too soon for the winger, but he could back in time for Celtic’s trip to Ibrox on March 11th.
