No Leigh Griffiths as Neil Lennon changes Celtic team

There’s no Leigh Griffiths in the Celtic team to face Livingston tonight.

Neil Lennon has made just one change to the side that beat St Johnstone in the Scottish Cup on Sunday.

Out goes Griffiths, who started in the 1-0 win at McDiarmid Park, but was substituted after 65 minutes.

Instead, it’ll be Mohamed Elyounoussi in his place – and that suggests the on-loan Southampton man partner Odsonne Edouard up front:

The big question is about what formation Lennon will set his team up in.

With Nir Bitton in the team again, it looks like it may be a 3-5-2, but he has enough attackers to play a 4-3-3 too.

Celtic lost at Livingston earlier in the season, going down 2-0 after losing Ryan Christie to a first-half red card.

They will be going for revenge tonight so that probably explains why Lennon has named such a strong team for the trip to the Tony Macaroni Arena.
