Scott Brown and James Forrest are missing from the Celtic side to play PSG tonight with Nir Bitton and Olivier Ntcham drafted in to a new look side.

Neil Lennon has listed Forrest among the substitutes but the skipper won’t play any part tonight with Callum McGregor wearing the armband instead.

It looks like Celtic will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation although Bitton could slip into defence with Jeremie Frimpong and Greg Taylor providing width on each flank.

Facing the French champions on their home patch is about as tough a test as Celtic could face at this stage of the season.

Celtic’s French contingent of Chris Jullien, Odsonne Edouard and Ntcham are in the starting XI giving them the chance to impress in familiar surroundings.

CELTIC: Bain; Frimpong, Ajer, Jullien; Taylor; McGregor, Bitton; Ntcham, Christie, Elyounoussi; Edouard

SUBS: Doohan, Hazard, Klimala, Hazard, Soro, Rogic, Bolingoli, Connell, Robertson, Forrest, Henderson, McInroy, Welsh, Karamoko
