Neil Lennon has named his Celtic team for today’s match at home to Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.

The full squad is as follows:

Starting XI – Hazard, Jullien, Taylor, Duffy, Soro, Turnbull, Edouard, Elyounoussi, Frimpong, Ajer, McGregor.

Substitutes – Barkas, Brown, Griffiths, Ajeti, Klimala, Christie, Rogic, Johnston, Laxalt.

The manager has put his faith in the players who shone against Lille on Thursday.

It’s brilliant to see the likes of David Turnbull and Ismaila Soro in the team, as Odsonne Edouard returns to the starting eleven.

This is the team many have been calling for in recent days and fingers crossed it pays off with a positive performance and a big result against the Ayrshire outfit.

Can these fringe players stake a claim to keep their place in the team?

Broadcast Details

Today’s match is on the club’s ‘Pass To Paradise’ streaming service for season ticket holders.

Celtic TV will also only be broadcasting live coverage for subscribers to the separate service outside of the UK & Ireland.

There is no broadcast television coverage today.

For those who cannot watch the match, BBC Radio Scotland is providing live audio commentary online and over the airwaves.

Fan reaction

As you can imagine, fans are pretty excited to see the team that has been named.

Thursday’s display was much improved and the credit went to Soro and Turnbull in the midfield.

Lennon finally appears to be learning lessons from his failings this season and deserves credit for picking an exciting lineup.
