Carles Puyol, Dani Alves and Sergio Busquets will miss Barcelona's upcoming European encounter with Celtic.

Spanish side Barcelona will be without three senior players for Tuesday's Champions League encounter at home to Celtic.

Captain Carles Puyol and fellow defender Dani Alves have been ruled out of the encounter because of injuries.

Meanwhile, midfielder Sergio Busquets will play no part due to a suspension.

Reports have claimed that coach Tito Vilanova will rest a number of his key players for the clash.

Barca warmed up for the match with a 5-4 win over Deportivo in La Liga last night.
