Paolo De Ceglie: Out of Tuesday¿s match against Celtic due to injury

Paolo De Ceglie: Out of Tuesday¿s match against Celtic due to injury

The defender suffered a thigh injury in Saturday's Serie A victory over Fiorentina and had to be taken off just after the hour mark.

He underwent scans on Sunday morning to discover the extent of the damage and it has now been confirmed that he will not travel to Glasgow.

However, Mirko Vucinic looks set to be available after it emerged the knee problem which forced him off against Fiorentina was not as serious as initially feared.

Vucinic opened the scoring in a 2-0 win as Juve tightened their grip on top spot in Italy and ensured they would go into the Celtic clash in good form.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
