Celtic Team News: Tierney’s return is the only change

BRENDAN Rodgers has made the one expected change to the side that beat Kilmarnock at the weekend.

Kieran Tierney returns to the side with Emilio Izaguirre dropping to bench alongside Scott Brown, Olivier Ntcham and Krisoffer Ayer (making a welcome return from that horrible eye socket injury) and Morgan, Bain and Hayes.

The team is Gordon in goals. A back four of Lustig, Benkovic, Simunovic and Tierney.

Midfield is McGregor, Christie, Forrest, Rogic and Sinclair and our only striker Odsonne Edouard leads the line.

Kick off is at 8pm.
