Neil Lennon has revealed that Nir Bitton, Hatem Elhamed and Olivier Ntcham are all major injury doubts for Celtic's Europa League clash against Lille tomorrow.

Speaking in his press conference this afternoon, he said: “Bitton, Elhamed and Ntcham are all major doubts for tomorrow.

“We are looking at Klimala, Turnbull, Soro getting game time which they deserve and need with the run of games coming up. It’s ideal to give them an opportunity to play.

“I’ve got belief in the players. I’ve been back here almost two years and they’ve been fantastic. I have no doubt they’ll put a run together but we have to put those words into action.”

We told earlier how Elhamed looks set for a shock Parkhead departure this January.

The Israeli defender made the switch to Glasgow from Hapoel Be’er Sheva last summer for a fee of £1.6million.

And since his move he has been seperated from his family, who are still living in his homeland.

The Scottish Sun report that Elhamed has failed to settle down to life in Glasgow and it is understood that he is now looking for a route out of Scotland.

The article also states that the 29-year-old could move back to Maccabi Tel-Aviv, where he started his footballing career.
