Celtic v KR Reykjavik preview

Republic of Ireland forward Anthony Stokes is out of the second leg of Celtic's Champions League second qualifier against KR Reykjavik at Murrayfield on Tuesday night.

The Hoops hitman missed out on the friendly against Dynamo Dresden in Germany at the weekend with a pulled muscle.

Last season's Scottish Player Of The Year Kris Commons was substituted late in the first half with a thigh injury but Celtic manager Ronny Deila is confident he will be fit.

Finland's Teemu Pukki is likely to replace Stokes but young Scot Tony Watt is also in the squad as the Scottish champions look to build on their 1-0 lead from the first leg.

The winner of the tie will play either Legia Warsaw or St Patrick's Athletic, who are level at 1-1 from the first leg with the second in Dublin on Wednesday.
