James Forrest comes in for Liel Abada as Ange Postecoglou makes one change to the starting XI that beat St Johnstone on Saturday for tonight’s Europa League match away to Leverkusen.

At Hampden on Saturday Forrest came off the bench to score the winner and is rewarded with his first starting place since mid-August at home to AZ Alkmaar.

With Carl Starfelt, Tom Rogic and Giorgos Giakoumakis all still missing there wasn’t much scope for change as Celtic look to build on two successive Europa League wins at the home of the side topping their group with 10 points from four matches.

Five substitutes can be used, former Celt Jeremie Frimpong is at right-back for Leverkusen who beat Real Betis 4-0 in their prevoous tie.

Real Betis host pointless Ferencvaros with Celtic almost certainly needing to take a point in Germany to make Matchday 6 a live match.

CELTIC: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Welsh, Juranovic; Bitton, McGregor, Turnbull; Forrest, Kyogo, Jota

SUBS: Bain, Oluwayemi, Scales, Ajeti, Abada, Soro, McCarthy, Johnston, Urhoghide, Shaw, Murray, Montgomery.
