Celtic host Sparta Prague in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. The Scottish champions are close to full strength and can take advantage of a Sparta side that are poor travellers in the competition.

Neil Lennon’s side drew 3-3 at Aberdeen after conceding in added time. The Hoops took a 2-0 lead in Lille thanks to two quick fire goals to Mohamed Elyounoussi but couldn’t hold on.
