Celtic will assess the fitness of four key players ahead of what will be a huge test for the Bhoys.

Scott Brown (hip), James Forrest (groin), Georgios Samaras (elbow) and Kris Commons (hamstring) will be assessed at training ahead of Celtic's Champions League clash with Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night.

All four missed Saturday's 5-0 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over St Mirren in Paisley.

Defenders Adam Matthews and Kelvin Wilson picked up respective knee and calf complaints but manager Neil Lennon is hoping both will be fit. Lassad (groin) and Dylan McGeouch (knock) did not travel.

Celtic (from): Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Ambrose, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Brown, Ledley, Kayal, Forrest, Commons, Samaras, Wanyama, McCourt, Miku, Watt, Zaluska, Chalmers.
