MIKAEL LUSTIG and Kristoffer Ajer return to the Celtic first team for tonight’s Premiership encounter against St Mirren at Parkhead.

The Swedish international right-back is in for the injured Anthony Ralston who has an ankle problem following the 3-0 Scottish Cup win over Airdrie on Saturday night.

Ajer has replaced Dedryck Boyata, who didn’t make the squad, to play alongside Filip Benkovic in the middle of the rearguard.

Oliver Burke will make his league debut as he starts up front again while fellow new Bhoy Timothy Weah, a scorer against the League One part-timers, is again on the bench.

TEAM: Bain; Lustig, Ajer, Benkovic, Izaguirre; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Christie, Sinclair; Burke. Subs: Gordon, Simunovic, Bitton, Hayes, Henderson, Johnston, Weah.
