What’s the team news ahead of Ferencvaros vs Celtic?

Carl Starfelt will miss out for the Hoops after manager Ange Postecoglou confirmed the Swedish international defender faces a short lay-off until after the forthcoming international break.

The centre-back limped off with hamstring complaint during Saturday’s 0-0 draw against Livingston, which could see 21-year-old Stephen Welsh step in as the like-for-like replacement.

Postecoglou admitted: “We have options. Welshy has been raring to go and has been unfortunate not to get an opportunity to play, because whenever he has played he has been very good for us.

“Nir (Bitton) can slip back there as well so there are options.”

Tom Rogic is also doubtful but James Forrest came on from the bench against Livi after his recent calf troubles while James McCarthy was also in the squad on Saturday and could feature again.

Christopher Jullien is said to be “not far away” ahead of a long-awaited return to action, but left-back Greg Taylor will be out until the New Year with a shoulder injury.

Ferencvaros boss Peter Stoger will have a fully fit squad to pick from with only a slight concern over experienced midfielder David Siger.
