Josip Juranovic for Adam Montgomery is the only change in the Celtic side to face Dundee United from the one that beat Raith Rovers 3-0 on Sunday.

After his surprise appearance last week at Livingston there is no place on the bench for Boli Bolingoli but teenager Owen Moffat earns a call up from the B team in the Lowland League.

After losing three away matches in the SPFL Celtic can’t give up any more ground today but go into the match with a 100% home record that has delivered 15 goals in three matches.

United come into today’s match a point ahead of Celtic but on the back of very contrasting results. Last Sunday they beat Dundee 1-0 in the derby but on Thursday they lost 3-1 to Hibs I the Premier Sports Cup.

Next up for Celtic after today is the very formidable test of a visit from Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

CELTIC: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Juranovic; Turnbull, McCarthy, Rogic; Abada, Ajeti, Jota

SUBS Bain, Scales, Bitton, Soro, Montgomery, Welsh, Moffat

    Its a shame Monty’s not starting today, I like that Ange has given the young lads a go this season but rotation is a good thing and new signings need time too. This issue will crop up time and again this season as fitness returns to the squad. Boli’s not on the subs bench so what does that mean for his future. I also like the inclusion of young Moffat in the squad, he’s had rave reviews for his B team appearances and looked good in the pre season matches so hope we get a strong lead and he gets more than a few good minutes on the pitch.
