Image for Team News: Lennon makes four changes as the French Connection returns

After the disastrous defending against Hibs on Saturday Jeremie Frimpong and Nir Bitton drop onto the bench against Sparta Prague tonight alongside Tom Rogic and Albian Ajeti

Neil Lennon described his side’s defending as sloppy with Hatem Abd Elhamed and Chris Jullien returning to the back line as Celtic seek revene on a 4-1 defeat and a lifeline in the Europa League. Further forward Oivier Ntcham replaces Rogic with Odsonne Edouard taking the place of Ajeti in attack

The Celtic boss has been under intense pressure to get results with The Green Brigade making their feelings known with a banner protest yesterday morning.

With one point from three matches the hoops have it all to do to match last season’s achievement of reaching the knock out phase while Sparta know that a win can push them back into contention ahead of next week’s trip to Lille who host AC Milan tonight.

CELTIC: Bain: Elhamed, Jullien, Ajer, Laxalt; Brown, McGregor; Christie, Ntcham, Elyounoussi; Edouard

SUBS: Barkas, Hazard, Taylor, Duffy, Bitton, Ajeti, Klimala, Rogic, Frimpong, Henderson
