Pique has not played since suffering a foot injury against Spartak Moscow on September 19th but is now available again for coach Tito Vilanova, who has included the Spain international in a 20-man party for Wednesday's clash at Celtic Park.
The 25-year-old, who was sidelined for Barca's 2-1 win over the Hoops at Camp Nou last month, trained with Vilanova's squad for the first time since his injury on Monday morning.
He posted on his Twitter account: "I am content with my first training session with the squad. I have a very good feeling."
Pique's central defensive partner Carles Puyol is still missing through injury though, as are Adriano and Thiago Alcantara, while Sergio Busquets is suspended.
Barca have won all three of their Champions League games so far, leaving them top of Group G on nine points, five clear of second-placed Celtic.
