PHOTOS: Celtic squad prepare to travel to Romania

The Celtic squad have been pictured at Glasgow airport ahead of their Europa League tie with FC Astra.

The Celtic squad have been pictured as they prepare to depart for Bucharest to take on FC Astra in the Europa League. 

The Bhoys are currently unbeaten in the group-stages of the competition and they will be looking to continue their impressive form against the Romanian side. 

In the home leg, Celtic won 2-1, but they will be looking for an improved performance away from home.

The Scottish champions go into the game as favourites, but they will know that they will have to be at their best to avoid an upset.

A win could confirm Ronny Deila's men's progress to the next round and that would be sure to make the sizeable trip worthwhile. 

Deila will be without a number of first-team players, which will make their task harder. John Guidetti is not eligible for European matches, whilst James Forrest, Kris Commons and Anthony Stokes have not flown as they are not fit enough to play a part. 

There was a boost in the fact that Craig Gordon is part of the team, though, after there had been fears over his fitness earlier in the week.

Here are the pictures of the Celtic squad preparing to depart this morning.
