Image for Team News: Ange throws surprise debut to defender

Moritz Jenz comes into the Celtic side at Ross County today to make his competitive debut. 

The defender is on a season long loan from Lorient with his only prior Celtic appearance being as a substitute against Norwich City a fortnight ago. 

Stephen Welsh has dropped out of the squad to make way for the former Fulham defender with David Turnbull replacing the injured Reo Hatate in midfield. 

There are no changes in the forward positions with Kyogo Furuhashi leading the line while Giorgos Giakoumakis has to contend himself with a place on the bench. 

Carl Starfelt and James McCarthy step up onto the bench after missing last week’s 2-0 home win over Aberdeen. 

County started their season with a 2-1 defeat away to Hearts, last season Celtic won 2-1 and 2-0 away to the Dingwall side. 

CELTIC: Hart; Juranovic, Carter-Vickers, Jenz, Taylor; McGregor, O’Riley, Turnbull; Jota, Kyogo, Maeda 

SUBS: Siegrist, Starfelt, Giakoumakia, Abada, Mooy, McCarthy, Bernabei, Forrest, Ralston
