Celtic name Arzani in Champions League qualifier squad

Daniel Arzani has been named in Celtic’s 24-man squad for Wednesday morning’s UEFA Champions League qualifier against FK Sarajevo (AEST).

The 20-year-old has been sidelined since November 2018 after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament just 23 minutes into his league debut for the Scottish Premiership giants.

The on-loan Manchester City attacker required surgery, but Arzani is back in training and will travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina alongside fellow Caltex Socceroo Tom Rogic for the first qualifying round match.

“It is a dangerous tie for Celtic,” said coach Neil Lennon of tomorrow’s clash with Sarajevo. “We will not take anything for granted.”

“Sarajevo are the champions of their country and are to be respected.”

Celtic were dumped out in the third round of qualifying by AEK Athens in last season’s competition.
