UEFA president Michel Platini will attend Celtic's Champions League clash with Juventus as a VIP despite recent derogatory comments made towards the Scottish champions.

Following the Round of 16 draw, Platini said: "After being drawn against Celtic we can already consider Juve to be in the quarter-finals - they will count themselves very fortunate."

However, the Frenchman since sent a letter of apology to Parkhead and will now attend the February 12 meeting between the Bhoys and the Old Lady of Turin in a bid to atone for his misdemeanour.
