Brendan Rodgers looking for Celtic to up their game

The Australian global has been out for two months with a knee injury but Celtic hope to have him fit for Thursday's last 32 tie against Zenit St Petersburg and as such, they want him to get some minutes in his legs to build up his match fitness.

All the action is live on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4KUHD from 7.30pm (kick off is 7.45pm), while a Celtic v Zenit St Petersburg live stream will also be available on and via the award-winning BT Sport App.

The 25-year-old was named on the bench for the weekend's Scottish Cup win over Partick Thistle, but due to the close score line of the game, Brendan Rodgers didn't risk bringing him on.

Celtic will be facing a Russian side for the seventh time in European competition - they have only lost one of the previous six and have won their last three in a row (W3 D2 L1).

Former Scottish Premiership winger and Russian Federation global Andrei Kanchelskis has predicted the score ahead of Celtic's Europa League clash this week.

Rangers striker Kenny Miller has revealed he's still not over the 2016 Scottish Cup Final defeat by Hibs.

Zenit are now second in the Russian Premier League.

Celtic's last victory in the UEFA Europa League came back in October 2014 versus Astra Giurgiu (2-1 at home) - since then, they are winless in 11 games in the competition (W0 D5 L6).
