FILIP BENKOVIC has returned from injury to take his place in central defence for Celtic’s visit to St Johnstone this afternoon.

The on-loan Leicester City centre-back, who made his debut in the goalless draw against St Mirren in Paisley last month, replaces Jack Hendry alongside Dedryck Boyata.

Tom Rogic is in from the start with skipper Scott Brown still sidelined. Youssouf Mulumbu, who took over his role in the 3-1 loss against RB Salzburg on Thursday, drops to the bench.

TEAM: Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Benkovic, Tierney; Forrest, Ntcham, Rogic, McGregor; Edouard, Griffiths.

Subs: Bain, Izaguirre, Simunovic, Mulumbu, Morgan, Christie, Sinclair
