Naylor played in the 1-0 first-leg defeat by Dinamo at Celtic Park last week but missed Saturday's friendly against Sunderland.

Scott Brown will not be risked in the game.

The Hoops midfielder underwent ankle surgery at the end of the season and made his first appearance since against Sunderland last Saturday at Celtic Park, when he featured for the first hour in the 2-1 friendly defeat by the Black Cats.

Celtic's Champions League aspirations are in the balance and speculation about Brown's possible involvement has intensified since the weekend.

However, it is understood that Massimo Donati will be given the nod over Brown, who has been named in George Burley's Scotland squad for next week's World Cup qualifier against Norway in Oslo.

Kick-off at the Khimki Arena - Dinamo's temporary home - is at 5pm.

Celtic (from): Boruc, Hinkel, Naylor, Fox, Caldwell, Loovens, O'Dea, McGeady, Donati, N'Guemo, Crosas, Maloney, McCourt, McDonald, Samaras, Fortune, Killen, Zaluska, Caddis, Conroy.

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
