Neil Lennon has announced his Celtic team for tonight’s visit to Livingston in the Scottish Premiership, as per

The full match squad is as follows:

Starting XI – Forster, Bitton, Jullien, Ajer, Brown, Forrest, Christie, McGregor, Taylor, Edouard, Elyounoussi.

Substitutes – Gordon, Griffiths, Bayo, Hayes, Rogic, Frimpong, Elhamed.

Tonight’s fixture is live on television and has been hyped up as a difficult one for the reigning champions after Lennon’s team lost there in October.

Gary Holt’s outfit deservedly beat us 2-0 that day and will understandably fancy their chances against us tonight, despite our outrageous domestic form.

Livingston are the only team to beat us away from home in Scotland this season.

Celtic though have won every single fixture in the Scottish Cup and the league so far in 2020.

Lennon was always going to name one of his strongest possible elevens for tonight’s match, despite our heavy run of fixtures recently, so there aren’t many surprises in the starting lineup.

There is even good news with injury doubts Kristoffer Ajer and Mohamed Elyounoussi both making the fixture.

The impressive spine of the team – Fraser Forster, Christopher Jullien, Callum McGregor and Odsonne Edouard – are all intact to help both punish the home side and ensure there is no drama at the back.

It’s a team that should have no problem getting the job done against an outfit with the fraction of our resources but as we know it sometimes doesn’t turn out that way when 11 play 11.

Not dropping any points before next week’s trip to Ibrox is crucial.

Full focus and application is required from Lennon’s Bhoys tonight.
