Lennon left with injury headache

Neil Lennon has been rocked by injury problems ahead of Celtic’s Champions League Group G clash with Barcelona at Parkhead tomorrow night.

Emilio Izaguirre is out for six weeks with a hamstring injury picked up during the 2-2 Clydesdale Bank Premier League draw with Dundee United on Sunday and stopper Thomas Rogne is out for two weeks with a calf complaint picked up in the same game.

Winger James Forrest (hamstring) and strikers Gary Hooper (hamstring), Lassad (groin) and Georgios Samaras (ankle) missed the trip to Tayside and only the latter appears to have a real chance of making the game against the Catalan giants.

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Mulgrew, Ambrose, Brown, Kayal, Wanyama, Ledley, Commons, Miku, Hooper, McCourt, Samaras, Zaluska, Watt, Chalmers.
