Sarajevo v Celtic – Starting line-up announced, Bitton and Boli Bolingoli start

NEIL LENNON has named his first side of the new season as Celtic begins the long and difficulty journey to the Champions League in Sarajevo this evening.

Scott Bain is in goals, the back four looks like being Kris Ajer at right back, with Jozo Simunovic and Nir Bitton in central defence and new signing Boli Bolingoli making his debut – as revealed on The Celtic Star this morning – at left back.

Callum McGregor and Scott Brown are the deep midfielders, Ryan Christie is the Number 10, the wide players are James Forrest and Mikey Johnston and Odsonne Edouard leads the line.

On the bench Celtic go with Gordon, Jullien (as we told you this morning), Ralston, Hayes, Morgan, Sinclair and Griffiths.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm local time, that’s 6.45pm Celtic Park time.
