LEIGH GRIFFITHS will lead the Celtic attack against Livingston in West Lothian this evening.

There is no sign of Odsonne Edouard in the squad which may give an indication he was the Hoops isolating star who had passed positive for a coronavirus test earlier in the week.

Neil Lennon returns to the dug-out following a 10-day period of quarantine where he, his assistant John Kennedy and 13 stars were sidelined by protocols and missed the 1-1 draw with Hibs last week and the goalless stalemate with Livi on Saturday.

The returning gaffer makes six changes to the side with Callum McGregor keeping the captain’s armband with Scott Brown among the substitutes. Ismaila Soro is again in the anchorman berth in the middle of the park.

Conor Hazard, who played in the makshift line-up for the last two matches, drops out with Vasilis Barkas in the No.1 position and Scott Bain among the stand-bys.

TEAM: Barkas; Ajer, Bitton, Duffy, Taylor; Soro, Turnbull, Christie, McGregor, Elyounoussi; Griffiths. Subs: Bain, Brown, Ajeti, Klimala, Rogic, Johnston, Frimpong, Welsh, Laxalt.
