JONNY HAYES and Ryan Christie return to the Celtic line-up for tonight’s Premiership match against Hearts at Tynecastle where a win will move the champions five points clear at the top.

Neil Lennon made the changes to the side that defeated Hibs 2-0 on Sunday.

Left-back Boli Bolingoli is replaced in the starting eleven by Republic of Ireland international Hayes who has overcome a recent shoulder injury.

Playmaker Christie, who has sat out the last two games, will replace Nir Bitton who played in a back three alongside Christopher Jullien and Kristoffer Ajer against the Easter Road side at Parkhead. The versatile Israeli international drops to the substitutes’ bench.

TEAM: Forster; Frimpong, Jullien, Ajer, Hayes; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Christie, Ntcham; Edouard. Subs: Gordon, Taylor, Bitton, Griffiths, Bayo, Morgan and Rogic.
