Team’s Up – Bauer and Bitton start

NEIL LENNON has named a strong side to play Hamilton at Celtic Park this evening. Three points are absolutely essential and if we can improve the goal difference all the better.

Fraser Forster continues in goals. Moritz Bauer starts at right back with Greg Taylor keeping his place at left back. He won’t feature on Sunday in the League Cup Final as he is Cup-tied.

Kris Ajer and Nir Bitton are the central defenders with Scott Brown and Callum McGregor playing the No6 and 8 as usual.

Ryan Christie looks like he’s play on the right with Olivier Ntcham as the No10 and James Forrest will be combining with Taylor down the left.

Lewis Morgan continues as the makeshift No9.

On the bench Celtic have Gordon, Frimpong, Jullien Griffiths, Rogic, Sinclair and Johnston.

The Green Brigade will also return this evening after being banned from the game against Rennes in the Europa League last Thursday.
