MOUSSA DEMBLE will lead the Celtic attack against Aberdeen at Parkhead this afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers has decided to risk the Frenchman ahead of Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell as the Hoops prepare to celebrate their seventh successive Premiership title.

The champions’ gaffer has made five changes to the starting line-up that was held to a goalless draw against Kilmarnock in midweek.

Kieran Tierney returns for the first time since helping the club clinch the championship with a 5-0 win over Sevco Rangers a fortnight ago. Mikael Lustig, Dedryck Boyata, Oliver Ntcham and Tom Rogic also come back in place of Jack Hendry, Jozo Simunovic, Calvin Miller, Stuart Armstrong and Scott Sinclair.

TEAM: Bain; Lustig, Ajer, Boyata, Tierney; Brown, Ntcham; Forrest, Rogic, McGregor; Dembele. Subs: De Vries, Hendry, Simunovic, Roberts, Sinclair, Armstrong, Griffiths.
