Celtic boss Lennon gets fitness boost.

NEIL LENNON is expecting most of his injured players to declare themselves fit for the first leg of their Champions League play-off against Shakhter Karagandy at the Astana Arena tonight.

The Hoops boss revealed that strikers Amido Balde and Anthony Stokes both have calf strains while winger James Forrest and Derk Boerrigter have ankle problems. Virgil van Dijk has an ongoing foot problem although he made a substitute appearance in the Scottish Premiership win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday while midfielder Tom Rogic has ankle ligament problem but Lennon is hoping that they will all be ready for the game against the Kazakhstan champions.
