Celtic v Paris St-Germain

Celtic host Paris St-Germain in their opening game in Champions League Group B later this evening (kick-off 7.45pm).

Striker Leigh Griffiths is declared as available following a recent knock while away on international duty.

However, fellow marksman Moussa Dembele is still ruled out along with central defensive pair Dedryck Boyata and Erik Sviatchenko.

Latest recruit Odsonne Edouard, on loan from PSG, is though eligible to play having scored on his debut.

"Leigh's available, he's trained yesterday and today so he's fine," manager Brendan Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "Moussa's literally just come back so he's still a little bit away off fitness yet so he won't be available.

"He [Griffiths] was in real good form," he added. "He's a wonderful player and he's a player that's developed over the course of the last 12 months and you see him now at this level, he's been very, very good so it's great to have him back.

"On the other side of that, it gave us the opportunity to play young Odsonne on Friday and I thought he was very, very good so it gives us some options there with both those players fit, which is great."

PSG are without Argentine duo Angel Di Maria and Javier Pastore but Italian international midfielder Marco Verratti returns from suspension.
