Feyenoord have Celtic crisis answer as Ayase Ueda declares himself fit but Arne Slot keeps Champions League pokerface

Reading now: 193

Feyenoord striker Ayase Ueda has declared himself fit for the Champions League group stage opener against Celtic amid the Dutch champions striker crisis.

But boss Arne Slot has slammed on the brakes of a return despite the Japan international telling his agent to push for a place in the starting line-up when the Scottish Premiership champions arrive in the Netherlands.

Frontman Ueda picked up a knock while on international duty with Japan and missed the 6-1 Eredivise rout of Heerenveen while Slot will also be without first-choice striker Santiago Gimenez - who is suspended for the first two group Champions League stage games.

Rookie striker Calvin Stengs is the only fit and available striker for the Dutch champions going into their first clash in Europe's elite competition - but general manager Dennis te Kloese has revealed Ueda has made a play to start against the Hoops.
