Celtic defender Mikael Lustig's hamstring injury is not as bad as first feared, according to manager Ronny Deila.

The right-back, 28, was stretchered round the field during Wednesday's 3-2 defeat of Malmo in Glasgow, having left the pitch for treatment.

However, Deila revealed the Sweden international could return in time to face Malmo in Tuesday's return leg.

"It doesn't seem to be so serious," said Deila.

"He has a chance on Tuesday. We will see."

Lustig missed much of last season with injury.
