Rogic ruled out of Zenit test
Australian midfielder Tom Rogic has been ruled out of Celtic's Europa League meeting with Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday.
Rogic has been sidelined since mid-December because of a knee problem but was an unused substitute for Saturday's Scottish Cup win over Partick Thistle.
"He's going to be hopefully available in a week or so," said assistant manager Chris Davies. "He's had some good training and he's on his way back from being out for a while."
Patrick Roberts, Stuart Armstrong, Jonny Hayes, Craig Gordon and Marvin Compper will also sit out the last-32 first leg encounter.
Zenit have been without a league game since December because of Russian football's winter break but they warmed up for the Celtic match with a 3-1 win over Maribor in a friendly in Antayla.
Zenit are managed by the former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini who guided his side to the last 32 by finishing top of a Europa League qualifying group that also contained Real Sociedad, Rosenborg and Vardar of Macedonia.
His side are second, eight points behind Lokomotiv Moscow a in their domestic league.
Celtic are 17/10 to win Thursday's first leg and 7/4 to qualify for the last 16 of the Europa League.
