Celtic fans were in full voice today as they marched through the streets of Rome.

Over 10,000 supporters are in the Italian capital for tonight’s match with Lazio as Neil Lennon’s side look to progress in the Europa League.

The build up to the match has been overshadowed by security concerns with all sorts of warnings issued about the safety of visiting fans but the supporters below weren’t being put off by the scare stories.

Two Celtic fans were stabbed last night but neither is reported to be in a serious condition with no reports of trouble today despite the influx of thousands of Celtic supporters.

Fans were being transported by bus to the Stadio Olympico from 2pm with strong security measures throughout the city with UEFA closing part of the Curva Nord as a result of previous racist issues among the Lazio support.

On the pitch Neil Lennon has made three changes to the team that beat Hibs 5-2 on Saturday with Jonny Hayes, Hatem Abd Elhamed and Ryan Christie replacing Boli Bolingoli, Jeremie Frimpong and Tom Rogic.

CELTIC: Forster; Elhamed, Ajer, Jullien, Hayes; McGregor, Brown; Forrest, Christie, Elyounoussi; Edouard

SUBS: Gordon, Bitton, Bauer, Morgan, Sinclair, Ntcham, Taylor
