Inverness boss Butcher: Celtic players will be trying like made to be picked for Juventus clash

Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher believes Celtic players will be doing their utmost to win a place in the starting line-up for next week's Champions League meeting with Juventus.

The Hoops will prepare for the Round of 16 first leg with a Scottish Premier League clash with Caley on Saturday and Butcher suggests whoever Neil Lennon selects will be having a crack at making the line-up when Juve come to Parkhead.

"They may be a little bit focused on the Juventus game, I certainly hope so," Butcher said.

"They've got players that want to get into the side that plays in that match.

"Whatever team Neil Lennon selects, they'll be trying like mad to hold that position for the European match."

Butcher, whose side sits 15 points behind Celtic in second, added: "We beat them at their place but they beat us comprehensively in the first game.

"I think they'll be looking for revenge for us beating them and they'll want to open the gap even more."
