Leigh Griffiths and Albian Ajeti lead the line for Celtic tonight against AC Milan as Neil Lennon switches his strike force.

Ryan Christie has to settle for a place on the bench alongside Patryk Klimala and Moi Elyounoussi while Karamoko Dembele is listed as a substitute for the first time since August. Strangely Scott Bain and Vonor Hazard are both on the bench.

Following Saturday’s Derby defeat Celtic will be looking to bounce back quickly but they face formidable opponents in the Serie A leaders.

At the weekend Milan enjoyed a 2-1 victory over Inter to make it four wins out of four as they look to make inroads towards their goal of a return to the Champions League which they last won in 2007.

Lennon wasn’t left with many options going into the Derby match with Stephen Welsh and Diego Laxalt making their first appearances of the season while Tony Ralston and Ewen Henderson were on the bench for the first time.

Celtic have little time to reflect after tonight’s match with the hoops back in action on Sunday lunchtime away to Aberdeen.

CELTIC: Barkas; Welsh, Duffy, Ajer; Frimpong, McGreor, Brown, Ntcham, Laxalt; Griffiths, Ajeti

SUBS: Bain, Hazard, Klimala, Taylor, Soro, Turnbull, Christie, Rogic, Elyounoussi, Henderson, Dembele
