CONFIRMED: Dundee United v Celtic line-ups - Commons on the bench!

Here is how Dundee United and Celtic will line up for today’s Scottish Premiership clash at Tannadice...

Dundee United starting line-up: Cierzniak; Dillon, Morris, Fojut, Townsend; Rankin, Butcher, Armstrong; Spitall, Erskine, Ciftci.

Dundee United substitutes: Szromnik, Wilson, Telfer, Dow, Spark, Coote, Adeyemo.

Celtic starting line-up: Gordon; Matthews, Ambrose, van Dijk, Izaguirre; Bitton, Brown; Forrest, Johansen, Stokes; Guidetti.

Celtic substitutes: Zaluska, Scepovic, Commons, Griffiths, Wakaso, Fisher, Henderson.

Celtic can move seven points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership today, but they face a tough trip to Tannadice to take on Dundee United.

The Hoops have recovered from a slow start to assume their place at the summit of Scottish football, and they can once again pull away from the chasing pack with a win today.

Manager Ronny Deila has left Kris Commons on the bench, choosing to play James Forrest, Stefan Johansen and Anthony Stokes behind John Guidetti in attack.

Dundee United have a number of players who can harm Celtic, particularly Stuart Armstrong and Nadir Ciftci, and will be confident of springing an upset this afternoon.
