Neil Lennon Confirms Olivier Ntcham is Out of Lazio Tie But Christie in Contention to Start

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has revealed Olivier Ntcham will miss tomorrow night’s Europa League showdown with Lazio – but Ryan Christie is in contention to start the glamour tie.

French midfielder Ntcham picked up a knock in training last week and wasn’t risked in Saturday’s 6-0 thrashing of Ross County at Celtic Park, whilst Christie missed the match as he served the first of a two-game ban following his red card at Livingston earlier this month.

It seems Ntcham hasn’t recovered in time to be considered for selection tomorrow night but the Hoops manager has confirmed Christie could indeed start:

Celtic have four points from their opening two Europa League group stage matches after drawing in Rennes and beating Cluj in Glasgow, and another three points on Thursday could put them in an extremely commanding position to qualify for the knockout stages.

But do you think Celtic have enough in their locker to get through the group phase?
