Team’s Up – Forrest, Elyounoussi and Edouard start, Christie dropped

John Kennedy has named his Celtic team to host Livingston at Celtic Park this afternoon. The interim boss has decided to make some changes from the side that beat Falkirk 3-0 last weekend. Kennedy will likely have one eye on next weekend’s clash at Ibrox in The Scottish Cup. With that in mind, Kennedy has decided to start Moi Elyounoussi and Odsonne Edouard in attack whilst Callum McGregor returns as Rogic, Christie, Laxalt and Griffiths drop out.

In goals, Scott Bain starts.

In defence, Kris Ajer and Stephen Welsh start in the middle of defence with Greg Taylor on the left and Jonjoe Kenny on the right.

In midfield, Callum McGregor is joined with captain Scott Brown and David Turnbull.

Kennedy looks to have selected a 4-3-3 allowing Elyounoussi to play on the left with Forrest playing out right. Odsonne Edouard starts up front.

On the bench: Barkas, Duffy, Bitton, Griffiths, Ajeti, Soro, Christie, Rogic & Laxalt.

Celtic won the first encounter against Livingston at the start of the season; however, the last two games have resulted in stalemates with 0-0 and 2-2. This will be the third game between the sides at Celtic Park this season as the split fixtures have meant that the games are spread in such a way due to ‘fairness’.
