Celtic Team News – Calmac’s back, Lustig and Toljan start, Eddie up top

CALLUM McGREGOR returns to the starting line-up for Celtic today at Dens Park.

Injury worries Dedryck Boyata and Nir Bitton are not included in the team or even on the bench so McGregor will play in the deeper midfield role – probably his best position – alongside Scott Brown.

Neil Lennon has opted to play Mikael Lustig in central defence with Filip Benkovic on the bench.

It looks like James Forrest will continue in the No.10 role with the two wide men being Mikey Johnston and Scotty Sinclair.

Ewan Henderson drops to the bench.

Up top it’s Odsonne Edouard who starts with Oli Burke adding to the fire power on the bench alongside Bayo and Timo Weah.

Craig Gordon is still out with his knee problem so Dorus de Vries is the sub-keeper again.

Kick-off at Dens Park is 12:30pm.

COYYBIG – the Celtic team is as follows…


Toljan, Lustig, Ajer, Tierney;

Brown, McGregor,

Johnston, Forrest Sinclair;


Subs: De Vries, Benkovic, Hayes, Henderson, Weah, Burke, Bayo
