JUVENTUS last night arrived in Glasgow ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League last 16 first leg tie against Celtic and the Serie A league leaders pose a selection conundrum for Parkhead manager Neil Lennon to solve over whether French 
striker Nicolas Anelka will start.

Anelka arrived in Turin at the beginning of the year and his lack of first-team football means Lennon does not know if he will be in the Italian side’s starting X1.

“I don’t know how much football Anelka has played in the last few months, so whether he’s been brought in for domestic football or this game, I don’t know,” said Lennon. “We had them watched on Saturday, but we know that whatever two strikers they use will be quality.”

Meanwhile, Lennon is still hopeful of including Efe 
Ambrose in his plans, despite the Nigerian defender winning the Africa Cup of Nations last night in South Africa.
