Bayern have instead included U19 striker Manuel Wintzheimer for the trip to Glasgow, with Kwasi Okyere Wriedt - who replaced the injured Lewandowski at the weekend - not registered in the club's Champions League squad for 2017/18.

Celtic host Bayern Munich on Tuesday, having lost 3-0 to the Bundesliga champions in their last Group B outing.

Robert Lewandowski has called on the Bayern Munich board to provide a new striker to take the weight off his shoulders with the Poland global ruled out of the of his side's Champions League match at Celtic after picking up a thigh injury.

The future certainly looks bright at Bayern Munich, with the club's youth side still unbeaten in the UEFA Youth League.

Head coach Jupp Heynckes had hoped Lewandowski would be able to play at Parkhead but took the decision to rest the Poland global ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga clash at Borussia Dortmund.

"The coach does not want to risk anything as Saturday's game, which is very important for us, is in the back of his mind".

The victory puts the German side on nine points after four games, three behind leaders Paris Saint Germain and six ahead of third-placed Celtic, and their superior record against the Scots guarantees them a top-two spot in the group.

"They are big players but I'm not so sure they will be missed", he said. "I'd suggest he'd probably be out for a few weeks", said the Celtic boss.

Still, Liverpool send scouts to watch countless games-as do all 17 other clubs who will be watching the duo play tonight-and keeping an eye on players is hardly a reason to believe that a bid for either is likely to materialise in the coming months.
