CELTIC midfielder Tom Rogic and three Hibs stars will miss the Old Firm and Edinburgh derbies after being called up to the Australian international squad for the Asia Cup.
Martin Boyle, Mark Milligan and Jamie MacLaren, of the Easter Road side, joined Rogic in being named in the Aussie pool of players for next month’s competition.
They are due to meet up on December 26 and will be sidelined for the big games.
Rogic will miss the match against Rangers at Ibrox on December 29 while the Edinburgh trio will be forced to sit out Neil Lennon’s men’s home encounter against Hearts.
Australia go into the tournament, held in the United Arab Emirates, as defending champions, having won the competition in 2015.
