JEREMIE FRIMPONG has received the nod from boss Neil Lennon to return to the right-back berth for the noon kick-off against Ross County in Dingwall today.

The 18-year-old Dutchman was unavailable for the 3-1 Europa League Group E win over Rennes at Parkhead on Thursday with Moritz Bauer stepping in for the crocked Hatem Abd Elhamed.

However, the adventurous defender will face the Highlanders with the Austrian international moving to the substitutes’ bench.

Wizard of Oz Tom Rogic also comes into the starting line-up in place of Olivier Ntcham.

With Boli Bolingoli and Jonny Hayes still on the injury list, Greg Taylor makes his second successive start since his £2.25million switch from Kilmanrock on transfer deadline day.

Lewis Morgan, who led the line against the French side in the absence of the injured Odsonne Edouard, will continue in the makeshift role with the 14-goal marksman again taking a rest.

TEAM: Forster; Frimpong, Jullien, Ajer, Taylor; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Rogic, Christie; Morgan. Subs: Gordon, Bitton, Bauer, Griffiths, Johnston, Robertson, Sinclair.
