LIVERPOOL loanee Nat Phillips will start alongside Liam Scales in the middle of the Celtic rearguard in the Champions League Group E encounter against Lazio at Parkhead tonight.

Cameron Carter-Vickers, who has missed the last seven games through injury, will take his place among the stand-by squad.

Yang Hyun-jun, who was taken off at half-time and replaced by James Forrest against Motherwel at the weekend, gets the nod to start on the right-side of the attack.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Phillips, Scales, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Yang, Kyogo, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Morrison, Palma, Turnbull, Oh, Carter-Vickers, Tomoki, Bernardo, Forrest, Ralston and M Johnston.
