Messi set for Celtic return
LIONEL Messi looks set to return for Barcelona’s Champions League trip to Celtic tomorrow after overcoming a sickness bug that forced the Argentine to miss Barca’s 0-0 draw with Malaga on November 19.
Messi was forced to pull out of Barca’s line-up just hours before kickoff and the Spanish champions paid a heavy price, as the stalemate saw Luis Enrique’s men fall four points behind Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.
Messi returned to training yesterday and looks set to start in Glasgow along with Luis Suarez, who was suspended for Malaga’s visit to the Camp Nou.
Barca leads Group C by two points from Manchester City, with just a point needed from their final two games enough to secure qualification for the last 16. –
