New signings Lassad Nouioui, Miku and Efe Ambrose are included in the squad, while Georgios Samaras (elbow) Paddy McCourt (knock) and Filip Twardzik (groin) are out.

Celtic: Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Rogne, Forrest, Commons, Brown, Ambrose, Wanyama, Hooper, Keatings, Lassad, Miku, Zaluska, Chalmers, Watt, George.
