CELTIC boss Neil Lennon won't rush any of his top stars back to action tomorrow evening with one eye on the Betfred Cup final.

The Hoops square-off against Hamilton at Parkhead tomorrow.

We told earlier how they've received a major boost ahead of tomorrow and Sunday's clash with Rangers with news that four of their men returned to full training this week.

Mohamed Elyounoussi, Odsonne Edouard, Boli Bolingoli and Vakoun Bayo all returned to the training pitch.

Olivier Ntcham and Jonny Hayes are also coming through slight niggles.

But the manager will make sure his players are given enough time before they play.

"Olivier will have a good chance of starting tomorrow," Lennon confirmed. 

"In regards to Odsonne and Mo, no. We’ll see how they are. Boli won’t be fit for tomorrow either.

"Bayo’s back training now. Tomorrow's probably too soon and Jonny’s the same.

"The league’s a priority. The season doesn’t end on Sunday if we win the cup or not, and we’ve got a lot of games between now and January. 

"Hamilton’s our priority, it’s our most important game and we aim to win that as best as we can.

"We’ve got another five days before the cup final and our main focus is on tomorrow."
