NIR BITTON will make his first start in three months as Celtic boss Neil Lennon makes three changes in his line-up for tonight’s Premiership encounter against Hamilton Accies at Parkhead.
The versatile Israeli international has not been in at the kick-off since being injured in the 2-0 win at Ibrox on September 1. On this occasion, though, he will take over from Christopher Jullien in the heart of the defence with the £7million Frenchman on the substitutes’ bench.
Austrian right-back Moritz Bauer and French midfielder Olivier Ntcham also come into the side that beat Ross County 4-1 on Sunday with Jeremie Frimpong and and Tom Rogic also taking their places among the stand-by players in the squad.
Leigh Griffiths, too, is waiting to get his opportunity after coming on as a sub at the weekend.
TEAM: Forster; Bauer, Bitton, Ajer, Taylor; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Ntcham, Christie; Morgan. Subs: Gordon, Jullien, Frimpong, Sinclair, Rogic, Johnston and Griffiths.
