Team’s Up – Edouard returns with Soro and Turnbull retained

NEIL LENNON has named his team for Celtic’s game against Kilmarnock this afternoon. The Scottish Champions are in need of three points and will be wanting to build upon the excellent win over Lille on Thursday.

As a result, the manager has decided to stick with the players that turned out in the Europa League clash during the week – making just two changes.

Conor Hazard has kept his place in the starting XI, having done nothing wrong to displace him between the sticks.

Kris Ajer looks to continue at right back with Shane Duffy and Christopher Jullien playing in the centre of defence along side Greg Taylor at left back.

In the midfield, Callum McGregor captains the side with Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull.

In attack, Jeremie Frimpong starts on the right with Moi Elyounoussi on the left, with the only change coming from Odsonne Edouard replacing Patryk Klimala in attack.

On the bench for Celtic: Barkas, Brown, Griffiths, Ajeti, Klimala, Rogic, Christie, Johnston and Laxalt.

After the impressive performances of Soro and Turnbull against Lille, Neil Lennon had to pick them and hope that their freshness would help kickoff Celtic’s revival.

Come on Celtic!
