Toljan and Henderson start, Dorus on the bench

NEIL LENNON has made two changes to the side that defeated Hibs in the Scottish Cup last Saturday for today’s Premiership match against Aberdeen.

Jerry Toljan returns to the side in place of Mikael Lustig and Ewan Henderson returns to the side with Odsonne Edouard dropping to the bench.

Scott Bain is in goals, the back four is Toljan, Kris Ajer, Dedryck Boyata and Kieran Tierney while the two central midfielders are goal king Scott Brown and Nir Bitton.

Ahead on them will be James Forrest, Henderson and Scotty Sinclair and Oli Burke leads the line for what will be Neil Lennon’s Homecoming. Let’s make sure that it’s a celebration – three points, please Celtic!

Interesting choices on the bench where Dorus De Vries is named alongside, Jack Hendry, Jonny Hayes, Odsonne Edouard, Mikael Lustig, Timo Weah and Mikey Johnston.

Starting XI for Aberdeen today: Lewis, Shinnie (C), Considine, McKenna, Stewart, Wilson, Cosgrove, Ferguson, Ball, McLennan and Lowe.
