Confirmed Celtic line-up v Lincoln Red Imps: Dembele features, Forrest handed shock start

General view inside Celtic Park

Celtic take on Lincoln Red Imps in the Champions League this evening.

Celtic starting line-up: Gordon; Lustig, Sviatchenko, Tierney; Roberts, Brown, McGregor, Armstrong, Forrest; Dembele, Griffiths.

Celtic substitutes: Fasan, Izaguirre, Christie, Rogic, Janko, Ajer, Ciftci.

Celtic will be hoping to avoid a huge upset this evening as they take on Lincoln Red Imps of Gibraltar in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier.

The Bhoys remarkably lost 1-0 in Gibraltar last week, with Lee Casciaro making history with the only goal of the game - and Celtic must now get through tonight.

Manager Brendan Rodgers' reign would get off to a nightmare start if Celtic can't overturn the one-goal deficit tonight, and he's selection a surprising line-up for the game at Celtic Park.

Mikael Lustig, Erik Sviatchenko and Kieran Tierney start in a back three, whilst Scott Brown, Callum McGregor and Stuart Armstrong appear to be playing in a midfield three.

That leaves Patrick Roberts out wide along with James Forrest, who has become something of a forgotten man at Celtic Park having recently rejected a new contract with the club.

New signing Moussa Dembele starts alongside Leigh Griffiths in attack, with the duo forming a front two for the first time since Dembele's move from Fulham last month.

On the bench, youngsters Ryan Christie, Saidy Janko and Kristoffer Ajer are all available, as are left back Emilio Izaguirre, midfielder Tom Rogic and striker Nadir Ciftci.
