Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby believes stopper Kelvin Wilson is ready to return for the crunch Europa League Group I clash with Udinese in Italy on Thursday night.

Wilson, back from an Achilles injury, has not played since the League Cup win at Ross County on September 21 but may be called into action due to injuries to Glenn Loovens and Adam Matthews.

Speaking before Celtic flew out from Glasgow, the former Celtic defender said: "He is in contention, that's why he is travelling."
