Champions League: James Forrest fit for Celtic's crunch game against AC Milan
James Forrest has been passed fit for Celtic's must-win Champions League clash against AC Milan on Tuesday.
Last Updated: 26/11/13 4:09pm
The Scotland international has come through a late fitness test on the hamstring injury which ruled him out of last weekend's 3-1 win over Aberdeen and looks set to start against the Italians.
However, Lennon must take on Milan without the services of captain Scott Brown who serves the final match of the three-game ban he received following his dismissal against Barcelona on Matchday Two.
Israeli Beram Kayal, who scored the second and decisive goal in the 2-1 home victory over Ajax last month, again looks set to deputise for his skipper in the middle of the park.
And Mikael Lustig is likely to return at right-back in place of Darnell Fisher, who stepped in against Aberdeen while the Swede recovered from his exertions in the World Cup double-header against Portugal.
Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has seen his side fail to win any of their last five Serie A matches but one bright spot for the team is the return to form of striker Kaka.
The Brazil playmaker endured an injury-hit four-year period at Real Madrid but since returning to Italy has been the one positive from an otherwise miserable season for the Rossoneri.
He is certain to lead the line at Celtic Park but centre-back Philippe Mexes and midfielder Sulley Muntari have joined a lengthy injury list and are unlikely to take any part in the match.
Anything less than a victory will end Celtic's interest in the Champions League for another season while a win for Milan, and a Barcelona win over Ajax in Amsterdam, will see the Italians join Barca in the last 16.
You can follow all the action as it happens from Celtic Park live on Sky Sports 4 from 7.30pm on Tuesday evening
