Nir Bitton ruled out for rest of season through injury

Nir Bitton ruled out for rest of season through injury”

Ahead of the Scottish champions' last 32 Europa League tie with Zenit, Brendan Rodgers revealed he would be without the services of Nir Bitton for the remainder of the campaign after being told the Israeli requires knee surgery.

Sinclair has become a mainstay of Brendan Rodgers' side since then, winning a domestic treble in his first season and looking for a second this year, and is now the Hoops' top scorer with 17 goals.

Branislav Ivanovic is a doubt for the match with an eye injury. "He has a problem with his eye but he is getting better, although he is not 100 per cent yet", said the former Manchester City manager after arriving at Parkhead, where Ivanovic joined the rest of his team-mates for a training session.

Zenit scored lots of goals in the group stage, while seven of Celtic's last eight European games has seen an Over 2.5 Goals bet land, so that's what we're going for tonight.

Speaking to the media, Rodgers confirmed another player lost to the treatment table, making up a list of players that could rival any team in the country and talked of his hope to see some of his key men return soon after an unlucky spell. "We will decide tomorrow". The Italian - whose side are returning to action after a two-month winter break - said: "It is always a hard game in Glasgow". The supporters always push the team.

"Our objective was to get through the group stages of the Champions League, which was a great effort by the players". I think most teams would lose to PSG and Bayern.

Celtic take on Zenit St. Petersburg in the Europa League later this evening.
