Brendan Rodgers has provided an injury update on Greg Taylor, confirming the defender is back in training.

The Scotland international suffered a groin strain during the Scottish Cup victory over Buckie Thistle last month and has missed the last two fixtures against Ross County and Aberdeen.

While Taylor will remain unavailable for Wednesday night's trip to Easter Road he could be available for the weekend's fixture against St Mirren.

And Rodgers also confirmed that Daizen Maeda will be in the squad for the game against Nick Montgomery's men.

"How's the squad?" he said. "Yeah, all good. Good couple of days training. Injury wise, nobody back from injury but in terms of Daizen Maeda he's back which is great news, he's fit and healthy.

"We'll see how [Greg] is for the weekend, he's out on the pitch and moving really well, working well.

"It'll just be getting the sign-off from the medical team.

"We'll see, if it's not the weekend he'll be ready for the next game."

Rodgers insists "supporters are entitled to their opinion" amid discontent from some fans after the January transfer window and recent dropped points against Aberdeen.

The Scottish champions remain three points clear at the top of the table, with rivals Rangers having one game in hand, and the travelling support made their discontent known at Pittodrie last weekend with a banner that read: ""Celtic board- on your heads be it".

Rodgers' men signed Nicolas Kühn from Rapid Vienna for £3million last month and also brought Adam Idah in on loan from Norwich until the end of the season.

However, many Hoops supporters have felt that winter recruitment was poor and did not meet the expectations set out in terms of the "quality players" mentioned by the 50-year-old prior to the window opening.

And the Northern Irishman has addressed the recent discontent amongst some fans.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "It is probably one of the few clubs where you have won six games and drawn one out of seven but it feels more than that.

"Context is important and perspective is something you always have to have here as a manager and that is certainly something that I have.

"Supporters are entitled to make their opinion known and always will be especially with the demands at this football club.

"All I can concentrate on is making sure the supporters are clear and have clarity when they go into the games."
