Matthews in Celtic squad for Barcelona clash

Neil Lennon has included Adam Matthews in his Celtic squad for Wednesday night’s Champions League meeting with Barcelona.

The Scottish champions head to then Nou Camp for their final Group H fixture and could be boosted by the return of Welsh full-back Matthews who has been sidelined since early October with a broken collarbone.

Lennon also suggested that Nir Biton, Georgios Samaras and James Forrest will be eligible after overcoming various injuries and illness.

“Adam is there now and he will add to the squad,” said the Hoops boss.

“He is a very good player and very versatile as well. He was starting to hit really good form and it was a sore one for him.

“He has made a very good recovery and I’m hoping we will see him in the team in the next week or so.”

Lennon added: “Biton, Samaras and Matthews will be in the squad for Barcelona, and hopefully Forrest will be fit for Wednesday.”
