CELTIC may be able to call on three long-term injured players for Zenit St Petersburg if they continue their progress back to full fitness.
Stuart Armstrong, Tom Rogic and Patrick Roberts are all going through their paces hoping to play some part in either leg of the Europa League tie.
We understand that Stuart Armstrong is closest to a return but with Tom and Patrick working hard in training, they could be surprise inclusions in the squad next Thursday or the away leg in Russia.
Tom and Patrick have been out since last year while Armstrong suffered a setback in January.
Celtic’s form has suffered from the number of injured stars on their books but this looks set to ease in the next 6 weeks. if they can keep everyone fit then the run-in should be interesting!
