Team’s Up – Edouard benched, Ajeti starts

NEIL LENNON has named his team to face Livingston at Celtic Park this afternoon as the Scottish Champions look to take their place at the summit of the league table.

A win today with Rangers playing tomorrow at Easter Road, will see Celtic go top of the table. The manager has decided to start with Albian Ajeti in the place of Odsonne Edouard, who drops to the bench – whilst Patryk Klimala is also on the bench.

In goals, the £5m signing from AEK Athens, Vasilis Barkas starts.

In defence, GregTaylor, Shane Duffy, Kris Ajer, Hatem Ebd Elhamed and Jeremie Frimpong start in what appears to be the 3-5-2 that Lennon seems to favour these days.

In the midfield, Scott Brown is joined by Callum McGregor, Olivier Ntcham and Ryan Christie seems to be playing off of the lone striker Albian Ajeti.

Tom Rogic returns to the Celtic bench after a spell on the sidelines with injuries. The bench is made up of:
Scott Bain, Nir Bitton, Patryk Klimala, Ismaila Soro, David Turnbull, Tom Rogic, Odsonne Edouard, Moi Elyounoussi and James Forrest.

Christopher Jullien failed a pre-match fitness test after hurting his back in training on Thursday, but he should be fine for the Europa League qualifier against Riga on Thursday night. Odsonne Edouard drops to the bench after complaining of fatigue following the international matches and the quick-fire games against Ross County and St Mirren.
