NIR BITTON is the only change in the Celtic line-up for the High Noon showdown with Aberdeen at Pittodrie today.

Neil Lennon brings in the versatile Israeli international to replace Jozo Simunovic from the starting eleven that hammered Hearts 5-0 at parkhead in midweek.

The Hoops are looking to build on their 10-point advantage at the Premiership pinnacle while aiming to maintain their 100 per cent record in 2020.

They have won their previous eight encounters and have enjoyed success in their last nine visits to the north east.

The champions, zeroing in on a ninth consecutive title, have beaten Derek McInnes’ team twice already this season – a 4-0 romp at the same venue earlier in the campaign and 2-1 in Glasgow before the turn of the year.

TEAM: Forster; Bitton, Jullien, Ajer; Forrest, Brown, McGregor, Ntcham, Taylor; Griffiths, Edouard. Subs: Bain, Hayes, Frimpong, Rogic, Elyounoussi, Bayo and Christie.
