LIEL ABADA will continue in the wide right attacking berh when Celtic take on Livingston at Parkhead this evening.
The Israeli international replaced Japan World Cup ace Daizen Maeda at the interval in last weekend’s 1-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie and did enough to get the nod from Ange Posetcoglou for the visit of the West Lothian club.
The champions go into the encounter in a bid to restore their nine-point advantage at the Premiership pinnacle.
The Hoops have won all seven of their league games in the east end of Glasgow this season.
TEAM: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Abada, Kyogo, Jota. Subs: Siegrist, Jenz, Giakoumakis, Haksabanovic, Mooy, Turnbull, Bernabei, Maeda, Forrest.
