Team’s Up – Klimala and Christie start in Paisley

NEIL LENNON has named his team for tonight’s trip to Paisley to play St Mirren. The Scottish Champions are playing one of their games in hand after the initial game in August was carved due to Bolingoli’s jolly to Spain.

Lennon has gone for a strong side with a few changes from the 5-0 win over Ross County.

In goals for Celtic, Vasilis Barkas starts and he will be hoping to continue his impressive form in Dingwall. The Greek Internationalist will be joined with Greg Taylor, Shane Duffy, Kris Ajer and Hatem Abd Elhamed in front of him.

In midfield Ryan Christie returns at the expense of Olivier Ntcham, Scott Brown and Callum McGregor continue as normal with James Forrest operating in the wide areas.

In attack, Odsonne Edouard is joined by Patryk Klimala.

On the bench: Bain, Jullien, Bitton, Ajeti, Soro, Turnbull, Ntcham, Elyounoussi and Frimpong. Celtic will be playing this game that was postponed due to Bolingoli;s trip to Spain.

This team allows for Celtic to play 3-5-2 and that is what it appears to be with a back three of Ajer, Elhamed and Duffy with Taylor and Forrest in at wingback.
