Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby expects their forthcoming Champions League last-sixteen tie to help them keep hold of their leading players in January.

"This should be a great incentive for them to stay here at Celtic" - Johan Mjallby
Strikers Gary Hooper and Georgios Samaras, together with Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama, have all been linked with possible moves elsewhere in recent times.

"If we hadn't gone through and done as well as we have I think maybe some of the players who have done exceptionally well for us would maybe be interested to have another challenge."
