Celtic have been handed a massive boost ahead of their Champions League match against Benfica after skipper Stephen McManus was given the go-ahead to travel to Lisbon.

The Parkhead captain suffered a head knock during Saturday´s 3-0 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox and left the park on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask after losing consciousness.

He spent last night recovering at home after being released from hospital and will now join the rest of the squad at Glasgow Airport on Monday ahead of Wednesday´s match.
