Celtic take on Dundee at Dens Park this afternoon...

Celtic starting line-up: Bain; Toljan, Lustig, Ajer, Tierney; Brown, McGregor, Forrest, Johnston, Sinclair; Edouard

Celtic substitutes: De Vries, Benkovic, Hayes, Henderson, Weah, Burke, Bayo.

Celtic head into the game having drawn 0-0 with Aberdeen last weekend, but Rangers' inability to capitalise on their slip-ups means they can move 10 points clear today.


The Bhoys are still recovering from Brendan Rodgers' shock exit, and Neil Lennon will be hoping to take Celtic one step closer to yet another league title today.

Scott Bain keeps his place in goal as he faces his former club, and will be protected by a back four of Jeremy Toljan, Mikael Lustig, Kristoffer Ajer and Kieran Tierney.

Scott Brown and Callum McGregor will start in midfield, with James Forrest and Scott Sinclair operating on the Celtic flanks this afternoon.

That leaves Mikey Johnston to play just behind Odsonne Edouard in an attack-minded Celtic side, though there is no Nir Bitton or Tom Rogic to help in midfield.

Filip Benkovic does return to the bench though, alongside Dorus de Vries, Jonny Hayes, Euan Henderson, Timothy Weah, Oliver Burke and Vakoun Issouf Bayo.
