SHANE DUFFY makes his Celtic debut against Ross County in Dingwall this afternoon – just days after sealing his season-long loan deal from Brighton.

The Republic of Ireland international centre-back comes into the line-up as a change made by Neil Lennon to the side that beat Motherwell 3-0 at Parkhead before the international break.

Striker Odsonne Edouard also returns from injury to lead the attack after sitting out the previous two encounters.

Lennon will play Swiss frontman Albian Ajeti up beside the returning French ace against the Highland outfit who were thumped three times against the champions last season with the Hoops chalking up a 4-1 win at the Global Energy Stadium and 6-0 and 3-0 triumphs in Glasgow.

Ajeti has already made an impression for the Hoops with the winner against Dundee United at tannadice and a sweet strike against the Fir Park side a fortnight ago.

TEAM: Barkas; Jullien, Duffy, Ajer; Frimpong, Brown, Ntcham, McGregor, Forrest; Ajeti, Edouard. Subs: Bain, Taylor, Klimala, Soro, Turnbull, Christie, Elyounoussi, Elhamed, Welsh.
