Neil Lennon looks like being without four regular picks for Thursday’s Europa League tie against Lille.

Ryan Christie is suspended with doubts over the fitness of Nir Bitton, Olivier Ntcham and Hatem Abd Elhamed emerging at today’s media conference.

Ntcham and Elhamed were unused substitutes against St Johnstone on Sunday, if there is any real concern over their fitness it’s unlikely that they will play in what is virtually a meaningless fixture.

Against St Johnstone on Sunday Shane Duffy and Albian Ajeti were both missing which could force Lennon to dig deep into his squad for the dead-rubber against the French side.

Celtic have lost four goals in each of their last two Europa League matches and currently sit with just one point from five matches with 17 goals conceded.

During his media conference Neil Lennon suggested that Ismaila Soro, David Turnbull and Patryk Klimala will be involved in tomorrow’s match.
