Barkas started last week away to Livingston, Conor Hazard kept a clean sheet in the previous game against Livingston but Bain returns tonight as Celtic look for their first win of 2021. With Christie dropping out the partnership of Edouard and Leigh Griffiths is reunited.
A week ago Lennon had most of his squad back for the game at Livingston but a 2-2 draw finished on a plastic pitch covered in snow summed up much of the misery of this season.
With no match at the weekend Celtic slipped 23 points off the pace at the top of the table, even with three matches in hand most fans are resigned to the title being dead in the water in January.
Celtic have already beaten Accies twice this season but go into tonight’s match with just six wins in their last 22 games covering four competitions.
Hamilton are currently in joint bottom spot with Motherwell, in their last match, on January 16 they drew 0-0 at home to Dundee United.
CELTIC: Bain; Ajer, Duffy, Bitton, Taylor; Soro, Turnbull, McGregor, Elyounoussi; Edouard, Griffiths
SUBS: Barkas, Ajeti, Klimala, Christie, Rogic, Johnston, Ralston Welsh Laxalt
