Georgios Samaras is fit to return to the starting lineup for tonight's clash with Barcelona in the Champions League.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has recalled Georgios Samaras to his starting lineup for the Champions League clash with Barcelona at Camp Nou tonight.

The Greece international, who scored in the 2-1 defeat in Catalunya last season, missed the 5-0 demolition of Motherwell on Friday through illness.

The 28-year-old has been passed fit to start in this evening's Group H encounter, where he will partner Teemu Pukki in attack.

Meanwhile, Neymar returns for the visit of the Scottish champions having sat out Friday's 4-1 win over Cartegena in the Copa del Rey.

Coach Gerardo Martino also has Xavi and Andres Iniesta at his disposal following the duo's respective injuries - the latter of whom starts on the bench.

Barcelona: Pinto; Montoya, Piqué, Mascherano, Adriano; Busquets, Xavi, Sergi Roberto; Pedro, Alexis, Neymar

Celtic: Forster; Lustig, Ambrose, Van Dijk, Ledley; Matthews, Brown, Biton, Boerrigter; Samaras, Pukkki
