Anthony Stokes is out of the second leg of Celtic’s Champions League second qualifier against KR Reykjavik at the BT Murrayfield Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Hoops striker missed out on the friendly against Dynamo Dresden in Germany at the weekend with a pulled muscle and while Kris Commons was substituted late in the first half with a thigh injury, manager Ronny Deila is confident he will be fit.

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

Provisional squad: Forster, Matthews, Lustig, Ambrose, Van Dijk, Izaguirre, Commons, Kayal, Biton, Boerrigter, Johansen, Mulgrew, McGregor, Griffiths, Pukki, Watt, Zaluska, Gordon, Henderson, O’Connell.
