Confirmed Celtic line-up v Inverness: Johansen starts, Roberts on the bench

Here is how Celtic will line up to face Inverness this afternoon...

Celtic starting line-up: Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Sviatchenko, Tierney; Brown, Bitton; Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Armstrong; Griffiths.

Celtic substitutes: Bailly, Mulgrew, Commons, Kazim-Richards, Christie, Roberts, Allan.

Celtic's pursuit of the Scottish Premiership title continues this afternoon as they host Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Celtic Park.

The Bhoys have been underwhelming of late, but they did beat Ross County 2-0 last weekend, and Ronny Deila needs to put a run of wins together.

This afternoon, it's Inverness who face the trip to Glasgow - and Deila has handed a start to playmaker Stefan Johansen, who has struggled to recreate last season's outstanding form.

New signing Erik Sviatchenko continues in defence, whilst Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong start out wide as they look to build up some form.

Striker Colin Kazim-Richards is on the bench, and fellow deadline day signing Patrick Roberts is also a substitute having impressed for Celtic's development squad.

Other big names like Charlie Mulgrew and Kris Commons are also on the bench, along with youngsters Ryan Christie and Scott Allan.
