EVERGREEN James Forrest is in at the start for Celtic’s crucial Premiership encounter against Dundee at Dens Park this afternoon.

The winger transformed the team when he replaced Yang Hyun-jun after the hour mark in the Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen last weekend when he scored the second goal in the 3-3 draw.

Skipper Callum McGregor, who was replaced by Tomoki Iwata at the same time. will lead the champions once again.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Kuhn, Kyogo, Forrest. Subs: Bain, Palma, Idah, Yang, Nawrocki, Iwata, Bernardo, Kelly and Ralston.
