Confirmed: Celtic line-up v Raith Rovers - Ciftci starts, Nesbitt on bench

Here is how Celtic will line up to face Raith Rovers tonight.

Celtic starting line-up: Gordon; Janko, Ambrose, Blackett, Tierney; Brown, Johansen; McGregor, Commons, Mackay-Steven; Ciftci.

Celtic substitutes: Bailly, Lustig, Forrest, Stokes, Rogic, Nesbitt, Izaguirre.

Celtic will be looking to defend the Scottish League Cup as they take on Raith Rovers in the third round at Celtic Park this evening.

The Bhoys won the competition last season with a 2-0 win at Hampden Park over Dundee United, and manager Ronny Deila will be looking fir a repeat of that this term.

Deila has made some changes to the side which beat Dundee 6-0 on Sunday, with Dedryck Boyata and Kieran Tierney coming in to the back four in place of Dedryck Boyata and Emilio Izaguirre.

Stefan Johansen returns to the side in midfield, whilst Callum McGregor and Nadir Ciftci have been handed starting roles this evening.

Teenage winger Aidan Nesbitt, who has starred for the club's development side in 2015, is on the bench, with a chance of coming on late in the game to earn some valuable first team experience.
