And ahead of the return leg in Greece, they were stunned 1-0 in the Scottish Premiership by Hearts, with Kyle Lafferty's goal the difference between the sides.

Jacques Lichtenstein has become embroiled in a transfer row with the Parkhead club after the Belgian World Cup star rejected a new contract and downed tools over their refusal to sell him.

But Rodgers is disappointed by the way the player's agent is handling the situation. It is hard for a player. We just didn't get the job done.

"We will see over the next couple of days. But he is not disruptive".

'But I'm sure whoever plays in central defence will be more than capable'.

Despite guiding Celtic to the domestic treble last season, and a third successive year in the Champions League group stages within reach, speculation is rife that boss Brendan Rodgers could soon be on the move.

Bullish over Celtic's chances in the Olympic Stadium despite the loss of an away goal in Glasgow, Hendry added: 'If we play as we did at home we shouldn't have any problems.

Kick-off is 19:00 Celtic Park time with the game being shown live on BT Sport 2. Hearts responded to the capacity crowd, the new playing surface and the visit of the champions with a combative performance that saw them prevail courtesy of Lafferty's eye-catching contribution, but they also incurred five cautions - two of them to their full-backs, Michael Smith and Ben Garuccio - and will have to be alert to the possibility of serious depletion of their back line.
