Neil Lennon admits Georgios Samaras could be struggling for Celtic's Champions League last-16 clash with Juventus after the Greece striker came off with a hamstring problem during the 4-1 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over Kilmarnock at Parkhead on Wednesday night.

Samaras has been a key part of the Hoops' European journey this season but will have a scan on Thursday to see if he is able to feature in the first leg at home to the Italians on February 12.

Celtic boss Lennon is more confident that defender Emilio Izaguirre, who also went off before the break with a knee injury, will recover quickly.
