Boruc available against Hapoel

Date published: Tuesday 1st December 2009 4:00

The Parkhead club last month asked UEFA for special dispensation to bring young American goalkeeper Dominic Cervi into their 25-man squad for the match against Hamburg in Germany as a replacement for Boruc, who needed a knee operation.

But boss Tony Mowbray was granted permission from UEFA on Tuesday to bring back the fit-again Poland international.

Zheng Zhi will again drop out. The China captain was not signed in time to make the group stages but will be eligible for the knockout stages in the unlikely event that Celtic go through.

Kick-off at Parkhead is at 8.05pm.

Celtic (from): Boruc, Zaluska, Caldwell, Loovens, Daniel Fox, Hinkel, McGeady, McGinn, Robson, N’Guemo, Crosas, Samaras, Fortune, McDonald, McManus, Cervi, Thompson, Carey, McCourt, Wilson.
