Celtic Team News – Oli Burke and Mikey Johnston start, no Forrest or KT

NEIL LENNON has opted to shuffle the pack today and has brought Old Burke and Mikey Johnston into the side – with young Mikey benefitting from the sudden departure of Timo Weah on Friday afternoon.

Scott Bain is in goals as usual and the back four is Lustig, Simunovic, Ajer and Hayes – so Kieran Tierney is sensibly left out with Hampden in to weeks time in mind.

Brown, McGregor and Rogic are in the middle of the park the two wide men are Burke and Johnston and Odsonne Edouard leads the line.

Player of Year James Forrest, who didn’t train in Friday, is missing completely. Lenny was asked about Jamesy missing training at the start of his Media Conference on Friday and was rather annoyed by the question – now we know why.

Subs are De Vries, Toljan, Bitton, Sinclair, Ntcham, Benkovic and Ralston.
