Neil Lennon has a doubt over one of his big guns ahead of Celtic's Champions League Group G clash with Benfica at the Stadium of Light on Tuesday night.

Skipper Scott Brown (hip), Joe Ledley (groin), and striker Gary Hooper (hamstring) all travelled but the Hoops boss admits only two are certain to be in contention, although he refused to name which player is struggling.

Forward Georgios Samaras, who came off during the 2-0 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday with fatigue, and midfielder Kris Commons, who was substituted after suffering a dead leg, are both in the squad along with striker Miku, who missed the trip to the Granite City due to what Lennon described as a "small procedure."

Celtic (from): Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Wilson, Ambrose, Brown, Mulgrew, Wanyama, McGeouch, Commons, Ledley, Lassad, Miku, Kayal, Samaras, Hooper, McCourt, Zaluska.
