Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Jozo Simunovic is back in contention to play for Celtic tonight against PSG.

The Hoops’ centre-half has been out of action since October with a hamstring tear.

The Celtic boss has confirmed that the Bosnian international is fit and available for selection.

Speaking to The Times, the Northern Irishman said: “If we chose him then he is fit to play. He has had that time training and working in game like situations. He will be OK if he is chosen.”

Rodgers has to choose between pairing Simunovic with Dedryck Boyata in defence or keeping faith with Nir Bitton.

Simunovic’s last start for Celtic was in the 3-0 victory against Anderlecht in September.

The Bosnian’s career at Celtic has been stop-start due to injuries.

He has managed to play a total of 62 games in three years at Celtic Park.

At the beginning of last season it looked like his days at Celtic Park were over.

In August he was set to sign for Torino, but after passing a medical the clubs were unable to agree a fee.

He then established himself as arguably Celtic’s best centre-back.

The Hoops – possibly featuring Simunovic – have an extremely busy schedule ahead, with the Betfred Cup Final against Motherwell on Sunday the first in a trilogy of three games in six days between the sides.
