Celtic boss Martin O'Neill has opted to rest several of his first-team players for tomorrow night's UEFA Cup return leg against SK Suduva. Celtic won the first leg at Parkhead 8-1 so O'Neill has opted to leave several of Celtic's big stars behind to prevent any unnecessary injuries ahead of this weekend's first Old Firm clash of the season.

Henrik Larsson, Chris Sutton, Paul Lambert, Neil Lennon, Joos Valgaeren and Stilian Petrov were not on the flight to Lithuania this morning along with club skipper Tom Boyd, whose wife had a baby last night.
