James Forrest will be in Celtic's squad to face Juventus on Tuesday after overcoming a hamstring injury.

Celtic have confirmed that James Forrest will be fit for their Champions League tie against Juventus on Tuesday.

The winger was left out of the side that beat Inverness Caledonian Thistle 3-1 in the Scottish Premier League yesterday due to a hamstring injury.

Manager Neil Lennon told Sky Sports News: "Forrest is fine. He has had the two scans and he came through all clear so he will be in the squad.

"[Fraser Forster] is a wee but rusty but it was very important that he got game time. He is fine, there is no reaction to his [neck] injury and he will be ready for Tuesday."

Georgios Samaras and Emilio Izaguirre both face fitness tests tomorrow on respective hamstring and knee injuries.

The Italian side face the Scottish champions in the first leg of their last-16 tie at Celtic Park on Tuesday evening.
