Celtic manager Neil Lennon says he expects Charlie Mulgrew to be fit to play in Scotland’s double-header against Wales and Belgium despite being forced off with a head knock against Hearts.
The 26-year-old collided with Hearts goalkeeper Jamie MacDonald in the first half as the home side ran out 1-0 winners.
Goalkeeper MacDonald was carried off on a stretcher with Mulgrew coming off 20 minutes later although both had recovered well after the match.
On Mulgrew, Lennon said: "He was a bit groggy, a wee bit fuzzy. He wanted to carry on, but I think he was progressively feeling a bit more nauseous, but he has been checked out and he is fine.
"We'll have to check if there is concussion or a bit of grogginess. There is no reason why he can't go with Scotland and come under their medical department and let them look after him."
Celtic captain Scott Brown missed the game as he continues to deal with an ongoing hip problem.
"Scott will join up," Lennon said. "Craig is well aware of the situation with Scott. We don't know if he will be able to play the two games, but they will have to gauge that themselves."
On Friday Lennon indicated the midfielder wouldn’t be able to play in both matches.
Asked if he would be annoyed if the 27-year-old was to feature in Cardiff and against the Belgians, Lennon said: "I don't want to put pressure on anybody but no, I wouldn't because what surprised me after the Benfica game, he was fit to play in the Dundee game at the weekend.
"There are days and games where he recovers quicker than others. There is a little bit of inconsistency with this sort of condition that he has.
"But he couldn't play today, he was too sore and he made that decision himself on Thursday and Friday.
"It will probably all depend, if he is selected for the first game, how he feels after that."
