CELTIC manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Craig Gordon will start in goals against Manchester City in Wednesday's Champions League meeting.

Speaking at a pre-match press conference, the Hoops boss revealed that Dorus de Vries had not recovered in time from an injury he picked up against Kilmarnock on Saturday.

The Dutch goalkeeper was substituted after hurting himself in the first half of a 6-1 Premiership win for the Parkhead side.
