Celtic boss Lennon hoping Izaguirre, Samaras are fit for Juventus

Neil Lennon hopes that Emilio Izaguirre and Georgios Samaras are fit for Celtic’s Champions League clash with Juventus.

Neil Lennon hopes that Emilio Izaguirre and Georgios Samaras are fit for Celtic’s Champions League clash with Juventus.

Left-back Izaguirre sustained a knee injury whilst Greek forward Samaras hurt his knee in Wednesday night’s 4-1 win over Kilmarnock and Lennon has his fingers crossed for the key duo.

"Emilio should be okay. He just felt a little bit of tightness at the back of the knee,” he said.

"Georgios, we think, may have a slight strain but he will be scanned tomorrow and we are hoping it is not too serious.

"It is two weeks until Juventus and if it is more than a mild strain then it will be a concern. At the minute it doesn't look too bad but the scan will reveal more tomorrow."
