Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers must decide whether to recall Scott Sinclair or retain the 11 who delivered a "perfect game" against Zenit in the first leg.

He said: "It's important you stay calm".

We're sure a few of the Celtic boys will have the gloves out during Thursday's game, but don't expect their captain to be one of them.

"Everyone wants to qualify, everyone wants to go through".

Callum McGregor's late goal at Celtic Park put the Hoops in the driving seat ahead of Thursday night's game.

"Now we're looking to do that again. We know it's going to be hard but we believe that we can do it".

Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni to break this records against South Africa
The team also come up with a couple of changes that SA supporter think that will work because they seem to have she mounted up. Chahal leaked 64 runs in his quota of four overs - most by an Indian bowler (going past Joginder Sharma's tally of 0 for 57).

"We know that over the course of the two legs we need to replicate that, but the players are ready for that".

"They showed top quality away from home against us, and to be honest we played really well as well", said the Scotland midfielder.

"If we can get to a similar level then we have a great chance".

"We showed last week we can play with aggression, quality and intensity so it gives us a great opportunity". The 37-year-old has truckloads of experience under his belt and the manner in which he plies his trade against the Russian outfit would definitely have a major say in the outcome of the game.

Summer signing Ntcham, 22, missed Sunday's 0-0 draw against St. Johnstone due to illness, while Sweden worldwide Mikael Lustig, 31, suffered a knock during the first leg against Zenit.

With Celtic's busy fixture list of midweek European games, Rangers are being presented with frequent opportunities to claw back the deficit.

Dedryck Boyata is expected to miss out, along with the likes of Craig Gordon, Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts, Marvin Compper, Stuart Armstrong and Jonny Hayes.
