GOALKEEPER Scott Bain and defender Kristoffer Ajer are Brendan Rodgers’ two changes from the Celtic side that overcame RB Leipzig in the Europa League Group B game at Parkhead on Thursday night.

Craig Gordon and Filip Benkovic have not been risked on Livingston’s artificial surface for today’s noon kick-off at the Tony Macaroni stadium.

Bain has covered for the Scotland international No.1 in the charge to the Betfred League Cup Final meeting with Aberdeen at Hampden next month, playing in the wins over Partick Thistle (3-1), St Johnstone (1-0) and Hearts (3-0).

Ajer got the nod to take over from the Croatian star who had to pull out of the team just before the kick-off against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park earlier in the term because of the underfoot conditions.

A victory this afternoon will return the champions to the top of the Premiership after Hearts’ 1-0 home defeat against Kilmarnock yesterday.

TEAM: Bain; Lustig, Boyata, Ajer, Tierney; McGregor, Christie, Rogic; Forrest, Sinclair; Edouard. Subs: Hazard, Hendry, Benkovic, Hayes, Mulumbu, Ralston and Morgan.
