OLIVER BURKE will lead the frontline against St Johnstone this evening at Parkhead as Celtic aim to move six points clear at the top of the Premiership.

The on-loan Hoops hitman netted a double in last week’s win over St Mirren and the Scotland international returns in place of Timothy Weah who started the weekend triumph over Hamilton Accies.

Burke, who agreed a six-month deal from West Brom earlier this month, is one of three changes made by Brendan Rodgers.

James Forrest is back with Mikey Johnston moving to the subs’ bench while¬†Jozo Simunovic replaces the injured Filip Benkovic in central defence alongside Kristoffer Ajer.

Odsonne Edouard returns to the squad and is also on the bench.

TEAM: Bain; Lustig, Simunovic, Ajer, Izaguirre; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Christie, Sinclair; Burke. Subs: Gordon, Hayes, Bitton, Henderson, Johnston, Weah, Edouard.
