Celtic trio remain in Scotland as team fly out for Champions League tie

Celtic trio Scott Brown, Mikael Lustig and Tony Watt are all out of the club’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Juventus.

The players remained in Scotland to receive treatment to injuries as the rest of the Hoops squad flew out to Italy for the game.

Assistant manager Johan Mjallby said: "Tony Watt unfortunately got a wee bit of a bruised foot in yesterday's training."

A thigh injury means Swedish international Lustig won’t feature with the 26-year-old’s last appearance coming in the first leg against Antonio Conte’s men.

In better news for the Scottish champions, Charlie Mulgrew did travel despite missing the club’s last three games with a muscle problem.

Celtic will aim to overturn their 3-0 first leg deficit when they face the Serie A champions on Wednesday.
