Samuel Eto'o has declared himself fit to play from the start for Barcelona against Celtic in their Champions League tie.

The Cameroon striker said: "I am always ready to play, but it's another thing what Frank (Rijkaard) decides. Last week, I was not in the best shape and I am not going to deceive the coach by saying otherwise.

"But it's different now.

"I do not see myself as Barca's rescuer, I have always said this. In my position, people want goals from me, but I cannot do this without the team. I need my teammates to help me."
