LEWIS MORGAN is one of four changes made by boss Neil Lennon for tonight’s Europa League Group E encounter against Rennes at Parkhead.

The winger comes in along with full-backs Mortitz Bauer and Greg Taylor with Oivier Ntcham taking his place in midfield.

Odsonne Edouard is rested from the line-up that hammered Livingston 4-0 in Glasgow at the weekend. Tom Rogic also drops out, but is included in the substitutes.

Among the stand-by players is Scott Sinclair, who appeared to be missing from the provisional squad.

The champions go into the confrontation against the French outfit knowing a win will virtually seal top place in the section from which they have already qualified for the knock-out stages next year.

Another notable inclusion on the bench is 18-year-old Scott Robertson who has progressed through the Celtic Academy system. The central midfielder has been with Tommy McIntyre’s reserve side for the past two seasons and joined the Hoops squad for pre-season this summer.

The Hoops currently sit in pole position on 10 points and one more in the remaining two games would be the highest-ever points tally in European competition.

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