Kelvin Wilson could after recovering from an Achilles injury.

Wilson could be rushed back with fellow defenders Glenn Loovens (hamstring) and Adam Matthews (ankle) still out, while Emilio Izaguirre has recovered from a broken ankle but is not ready to play.

Midfielders Kris Commons (thigh) and Joe Ledley (ankle) remain on the sidelines.

Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin is still undecided as to whether he will play veteran striker Antonio Di Natale, 34, who has scored 10 league goals in 13 games this season including one in the 2-1 win over Chievo at the weekend.

"I will decide tomorrow," he said.

"I have all my players available, it is going to be like a final and we will have to be prepared.

"We will need the best Udinese team to beat Celtic, who are a very experienced team."

He added: "Tomorrow is a completely different match from what we played in Glasgow (when it finished 1-1).

"It is in or out. So it is not about tactics, it's more about nerves.

"We know the Celtic players a little bit better but it still doesn't change what we need to do."

Celtic (from): Forster, Majstorovic, Cha, K Wilson, Rogne, Brown, Kayal, Wanyama, Samaras, Stokes, Ki, Forrest, Hooper, Zaluska, Bangura, Keatings, Toshney, Twardzik, George.
