Celtic boss Ange Postecoglou has confirmed that Reo Hatate, Jota and Liel Abada are all available for the Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers at Hampden.

The Japanese playmaker has not featured for the Hoops since before the international break.

Abada is in the same boat while Jota has been nursing a knock for the last two matches.

However, all three are available for the game at the national stadium.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, he said: "From last week everyone got through unscathed.

"Liel Abada, Jota and Reo Hatate have trained all week so they are available. James Forrest is probably another week or so away".

Meanwhile, former Rangers midfielder Nicky Law has revealed he thought his performance against ex-Celtic star Kieran Tierney in the 2016 Scottish Cup semi-final would lead to him "not being able to set foot in Glasgow again."

It was the Hoops academy graduate's first appearance against the Ibrox side and he left an impression on the ex-Motherwell man.

Rangers went on to win the fixture on penalties after Tom Rogic had equalised in extra time.

And despite the result, Law felt like Tierney had got the better of him in the match.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, he said: "Kieran Tierney was flying at that point and I knew he was going to the very top.

"We knew we had to stop him, but he was relentless getting up and down.

"I remember Tierney skipped past me for the equaliser and I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me.

"I thought the Rangers fans would never forgive me. I feared I wouldn't be able to set foot in Glasgow again as the game is so important."
