Neil Lennon has picked the side that drew with Udinese to face St Johnstone today.

Emilio Izaguirre has failed to make it onto the bench which effectively rules him out of the December 28 clash with Rangers.

Anthony Stokes is missing from the bench with recent signing Andre Blackman, who was ineligible for the Udinese match, listed as a substitute.

Discussing his team selection Lennon said: “”I didn’t feel the need to change it. The did very well and there is a hunger about them. And they are very focussed on this game. Six wins in a row and we want to make it seven and narrow the gap at the top.”

St Johnstone: Enckelman, MacKay, Anderson, McCracken, Maybury, Millar, Murray Davidson, Moon, Robertson, Craig, Haber. Subs: Mannus, Parkin, Finnigan, Gibson, Durnan, McIntosh, Gray.

Celtic: Forster, Cha, Majstorovic, Mulgrew, Wanyama, Ki, Brown, Forrest, Kayal, Hooper, Samaras. Subs: Zaluska, Kelvin Wilson, Bangura, Blackman, McGeough, Twardzik, Rogne.
