Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has announced his team to face FK Suduva at Celtic Park this evening.

A place in the group stages of the UEFA Europa League is on the line and with the aggregate score tied at 1-1, it’s all to play for in Glasgow.

As announced by UEFA, tonight’s full match squad is:

Starting XI: Craig Gordon, Mikael Lustig, Kristoffer Ajer, Dedryck Boyata, Kieran Tierney, Scott Brown, Olivier Ntcham, Scott Sinclair, Callum McGregor, Mikey Johnston, Leigh Griffiths.

Substitutes: Scott Bain, Emilio Izaguirre, Cristian Gamboa, Jonny Hayes, Ryan Christie, Tom Rogic, James Forrest.

With the transfer speculation surrounding Moussa Dembele dominating headlines this week, it’s not a surprise to see him sit out this evening’s match, with Leigh Griffiths stepping up to take his place instead.

Odsonne Edouard does feature on the bench and fans will be hoping to see his return from injury at some point this evening.

Elsewhere, Rodgers has decided to hand youngster Mikey Johnston another start, with Scott Sinclair also making a return to the starting eleven.
