    I'd go for that, leave Johnston to come on hes had a couple of niggles but even to get 30 minutes out of him would be good.

    Jullien i'd leave out again, still rusty and Bitton is playing well and Bitton will be of good use at breaking them down with using the ball.

    I think they will struggle in the atmosphere of Celtic park with us playing fast tempo football against them and pinning them back. Need the first goal to settle us though, better give nothing away from set pieces.

    Cluj are a wee bit better than i gave them credit for but i don't see anyway they score 2 and we don't, i think we'll win 3-1. Very harsh to leave Ntcham out after that performance but unless Johnston isn't fully fit i don't see us dropping one of the midfield for him.

    Hopefully we can start the game well and blow them away first half, the horror home show against Maribor sticks in the memory, after a similar performance and result to this tie away from home.

    Think this will be tricky, but quite sure we’ll have enough to make it through. A nervy 2-1, late goal to put us through.

    I wouldn't have him in my first 11 after 1 game. Who do you leave out ?

    The work rate of McGregor would provide protection to Boligoli

    Time after time I have read on here that Brown and Ntcham can't be our midfield two (even in the SPL) as they aren't dynamic enough. I'd tend to agree that would a very bold move after 1 good game for Ntcham. However if Lenny is convinced he is in the right frame of mind for it then brilliant: lets go with it.

    Think Nctham will always be played further up , with even Christie out wide
