Celtic captain Stephen McManus is hoping a calf strain does not rule him out of any of the team's crucial SPL title run-in.
Sunday's thrilling 3-2 success over arch-rivals Rangers has given the Bhoys a five-point lead, although the Gers still have three games in hand.
Celtic know they will need to win all their remaining games to keep up the pressure on Walter Smith's side, and McManus has no plans to be watching on from the sidelines.
"There's three games to go and you don't want to miss any," McManus said.
"We'll see how it goes in the next couple of days.
"I got a bang on my calf and it was just tightening up so it's just a strain I suppose."
