Confirmed Celtic line-up v Borussia Monchengladbach: Dembele starts, De Vries on the bench

General view inside Celtic Park

Celtic take on Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League this evening.

Celtic starting line-up: Gordon; Lustig, Toure, Sviatchenko, Tierney; Bitton, Brown; Forrest, Rogic, Sinclair; Dembele.

Celtic substitutes: De Vries, Izaguirre, Simunovic, Griffiths, Armstrong, Roberts, McGregor.

Celtic are back in Champions League action tonight as they host Borussia Monchengladbach at Celtic Park.

The Bhoys have played two group games so far, losing 7-0 at Barcelona before an enthralling 3-3 draw at home to Manchester City last time out.

Whilst manager Brendan Rodgers may not claim a top two spot given the quality of Barcelona and Manchester City, third place results in qualification for the knockout stages of the Europa League – and a win tonight would really boost Celtic's hopes of finishing third ahead of tonight's opponents Gladbach.

Tonight, Rodgers has gone with Craig Gordon in goal ahead of summer signing Dorus De Vries, who has been left on the bench as Celtic's two goalkeepers continue their battle.

It's a familiar back four of Mikael Lustig, Kolo Toure, Erik Sviatchenko and Kieran Tierney, with Toure coming back in for Jozo Simunovic at centre back.

Nir Bitton and Scott Brown start in front of the back four, whilst James Forrest, Tom Rogic and Scott Sinclair will again be called upon to support lone striker Moussa Dembele, who has again been chosen ahead of Leigh Griffiths.

Joining De Vries on the bench are Simunovic and Griffiths, as well as the likes of Patrick Roberts, Stuart Armstrong and Emilio Izaguirre.
