Celtic getting ready to take on Riga FC in Latvia this evening and the club have released the starting squad.

Celtic starting XI: Barkas; Ajer, Bitton, Duffy; Forrest, McGregor, Brown, Ntcham, Taylor; Edouard, Christie.

Celtic substitutes: Bain, Ajeti, Klimala, Turnbull, Elyounoussi, Frimpong, Elhamed.

Neil Lennon goes with Vasilis Barkas in goal, behind a back three of Kristoffer Ajer, Nir Bitton and Shane Duffy.

James Forrest and Greg Taylor will be the wing backs, with a midfield three of Callum McGregor, Scott Brown and Olivier Ntcham.

Ryan Christie will play just off Odsonne Edouard in attack.

This would mean that Celtic’s Swiss striker, Albian Ajeti will be left on the bench, this could be due to the player still not being fully fit.

We fully expect Ajeti to come on at some point during the match, Neil Lennon has some great players on that Hoops bench tonight and plenty of tactical options should the Latvians pose a threat.
