is one of four changes to the Celtic side to face Hibs today following the defeat from RB Salzburg.

The former Hibs midfielder is joined by Olivier Ntcham in the centre of the park while and Emilio Izaguirre come into the side at full back. Ryan Christie, Tom Rogic, and Mukael Lustig drop out.

With beating Dundee to go back to the top of the table full points this afternoon will restore Celtic’ lead at the top of the Premiership.

The hoops beat Hibs 4-2 earlier this season which sent Neil Lennon’ side into a horrendous run of form that sent them into the bottom half of the table.

Last week’ 1-0 win at Hamilton brought that win-less run to a halt but with Celtic followed by two clashes with the tribute act and a derby match with Hibs Lennon’s side face a testing end to the year.

After today’ match Celtic enjoy back to back home matches against Motherwell and Dundee before completing 2018 with trips to Pittodrie and Ibrox.

CELTIC: Gordon; Ajer, Simunovic, Benkovic, Izaguirre; Brown, Ntcam; Forrest, McGregor, Sinclair; Edouard

SUBS: Bain, Hendry, Morgan, Ralston, Johnston, Hayes, Mulumbu
