Boli Bolingoli comes back in from the cold as Ange Postecoglou makes two changes to the Celtic side that faces Motherwell today.

The former Rapid Vienna defender, who was left out of Celtic’s Europa League squad, played in the 1-0 defeat at Livingston last month replaces Adam Montgomery at left-back with Tom Rogic taking over from Nir Bitton in central midfield.

Mikey Johnston is among the substitutes but after two weeks training at Lennoxtown there is no place in the matchday squad for James McCarthy.

Celtic trail Motherwell by a point going into today’s match but will be looking to build on their first away win of the season when they won 2-1 away to Aberdeen a fortnight ago. Willie Collum is today’s referee.

Celtic are quickly back in action, facing Ferencvaros on Tuesday afternoon in a Europa League tie, next Saturday they are at home to St Johnstone in the SPFL.

CELTIC: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Bolingoli; Rogic, McGregor, Turnbull; Abada, Kyogo, Jota

SUBS: Bain, Scales, Bitton, Giakoumakis, Ajeti, Johnston, Welsh
