Qarabag v Celtic preview

The Israel midfielder has shrugged off the ankle injury which kept him out of Celtic’s opening game of the season against Ross County last Saturday.
And Griffiths, who scored a third-minute penalty in the 2-0 home victory, is fit again after being forced to leave the pitch after 19 minutes due to a leg injury picked up in the incident which led to his spot-kick.
But Hoops boss Ronny Deila will again be unable to call on the services of defender Charlie Mulgrew who is still suffering the effects of a heavy challenge during a pre-season victory over French club Rennes.
Emilio Izaguirre and Nadir Ciftci are available again to Deila after both served domestic bans in the Premiership opener against Jim McIntyre’s side.
Celtic take a 1-0 lead into the tie thanks to a second-half goal from centre back Dedryck Boyata in the first leg at Celtic Park last midweek.
Provisional squad: Gordon, Lustig, Boyata, Izaguirre, Ambrose, Van Dijk, Johansen, Bitton, Armstrong, Brown, Forrest, Commons, Scepovic, Mackay-Steven, Tierney, Griffiths, Janko, Bailly.
