MORITZ BAUER, who came on as a substitute in the 2-0 win at Ibrox, make his first start for Celtic against Kilmarnock at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Austrian right-back, who has agreed a season-long loan at the champions from Stoke City, comes in with Hatem Abd Ellhamed getting a break on the bench.

Olivier Ntcham, who has been impressive in recent sub appearances, is in at the kick-off, too, for the visit of Angelo Alessio’s outfit.

Boli Bolingoli, who came off with what looked like a groin strain in the 1-1 Europa League draw against Rennes in France on Thursday evening, has made a rapid recovery and takes his usual spot at left-back.

Greg Taylor, bought for £2.25million from the Rugby Park side on transfer deadline day, will have to wait for his first start. He also gets a place on the bench.

TEAM: Forster; Bauer, Ajer, Jullien, Bolingoli; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Ntcham, Christie; Edouard. Subs: Gordon, Elhamed, Taylor, Hayes, Rogic, Elyounoussi, Bayo.
