TOM ROGIC has been rewarded for his stoppage-time equaliser in the 2-2 stalemate with Livingston in West Lothian.

Neil Lennon starts the Australian international playmaker, who came on as a substitute in midweek, for the visit of St Mirren in a game where the champions know a win will stretch their lead at the top of the Premiership to 16 points.

Ryan Christie, the Scottish Cup matchwinner against St Johnstone on Sunday, makes way with a place on the bench on this occasion.

Leigh Griffiths, another sub against Livi, also gets a place in the Hoops’ starting line-up as he replaces Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Lennon also continues with versatile Israeli international Nir Bitton in the wide right defensive position after his impressive performance against Gary Holt’s outfit.

TEAM: Forster; Bitton, Jullien, Ajer; Forrest, Brown, McGregor, Rogic, Taylor; Edouard, Griffiths. Subs: Gordon, Elhamed, Frimpong, Hayes, Christie, Elyounoussi and Bayo.
