TOM ROGIC and Jeremie Frimpong are given the nod by Neil Lennon to face Aberdeen at Pittodrie this afternoon.
The Australian international playmaker takes over from the banned Ryan Christie while the Dutch teenager steps in for Hatem Abd Elhamed who is on the substitutes’ bench.
Austrian Manuel Bauer, on loan from Stoke City until the end of the season, is also named in the stand-by squad.
ON THE RUN…Jeremie Frimpong races away from Ross County’s Ross Stewart in the 6-0 rout.
Those are the only changes from the line-up that defeated Lazio 2-1 in the Europa League Group E encounter at Parkhead on Thursday night.
Still missing, though, is £2.3million deadline-day recruit Greg Taylor who is waiting to make his first appearance since his move from Kilmarnock.
The champions, who clinched their eighth successive title at Pittodrie last May, will be looking for a handsome victory with goals scored an important issue at the top of the Premiership.
TEAM: Forster: Frimpomg, Julien, Ajer, Bolingoli; Brown, McGregor; Forrest, Rogic, Elyounoussi: Edouard. Subs: Gordon, Elhamed, Bauer Hayes, Bitton, Sinclair, Bayo.
