OLIVIER NTCHAM, who has been substitute for the past three games, is included in Neil Lennon’s starting line-up for this evening’s Premiership match against Dundee United at Tannadice.
The French midfielder was involved in two goals after coming off the bench during Tuesday’s 6-0 Champions League first round qualifying win over KR Reykjavik at Parkhead.
Ntcham gets the nod to start against the Tayside outfit as the champions return to league action for the first time since the 1-1 draw against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park just under a fortnight ago.
James Forrest drops to the stand-by squad to make way for Ntcham.
New Bhoy Vasolis Barkas, the club’s £4.5million buy from AEK Athens, is again in goal with Jeremie Frimpong in at right-back after sitting out the victory over the Icelanders.
TEAM: Barkas; Frimpong, Jullien, Bitton, Taylor; Brown, Christie, Ntcham, Elyounoussi, McGregor. Edouard. Subs: Bain, Ajeti, Klimala, Soro, Ajer, Elhamed, Forrest, Harper, McInroy.
