Celtic skipper Scott Brown and Charlie Mulgrew are both fit for Wednesday night's Champions League Group G opener against Benfica at Parkhead.

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.
