Team’s Up – Ajer at right back, Conor Hazard starts in goals vs Lille

CONOR HAZARD has been named in the Starting XI for tonight’s Europa League match versus Lille. Neill Lennon has tried Scott Bain and Vasilis Barkas so far this season but neither have impressed so the young Irish goalkeeper will be given the chance in nets.

The manager promised to rotate the squad and has done so, with various fringe players given starting roles versus the French side.

Hazard starts in nets. In the defence, Christopher Jullien and Shane Duffy are the central defenders with  Kris Ajer at right back. Diego Laxalt is operating as left back as Neil Lennon looks to get a result to finish a dismal group.

Callum McGregor captains the side tonight and is joined in the midfield by David Turnbull and Ismalia Soro. With Moi Elyounoussi on the left and Jeremie Frimpong playing as a right winger. They will be hoping to support Patryk Klimala in attack.

On the bench for Celtic: Barkas, Bain, Taylor, Brown, Griffiths, Ajeti, Rogic, Edouard, Henderson, Harper, Welsh.

Much like a lot of this season, the formation appears a bit of a mystery. It could be a 3-5-2 with Elyounoussi and Klimala in attack or a 4-2-3-1, remains to be seen.

Come on Celtic. Give us something to cheer for.
