Christie and Edouard drop to bench as Lenny has one eye on Cluj

NEIL LENNON has shuffled the pack for the trip to Fir Park, after the midweek trip to Romania.

Scott Bain retains his place in goals and Kris Ajer moves over to cover at right back, referred to Tony Ralston who doesn’t even make the bench. Nir Bitton will partner Christopher Jullien in the centre of defence – Jozo is once again suspended after that VAR issue he had in Switzerland in the pre-season friendly – and Bolingoli gets another chance to impress after his stinker in Cluj.

Scott Brown and Callum McGregor, who is in line for a new contract after an approach on Thursday by former manager Brendan Rodgers was repelled, play alongside Olivier Ntcham – last week’s hat-trick hero Ryan Christie is on the bench. Rotation Bhoys, rotation.

The wide-men are James Forrest and Lewis Morgan, who had contrasting nights in Cluj, and Leigh Griffiths leads the line – Odsonne Edouard drops to the bench as Neil Lennon has an eye on Tuesday night’s vital Champions League return against the Romanian Champions.

The bench has Gordon, Hayes, Sinclair (not sold, still here), Bayo (returning from injury) and Shved as well as the aforementioned Christie and Edouard.

The pitch look great, the Celtic support will give as much vocal backing as possible, three points please Celtic.
