Brendan Rodgers has named his Celtic side to take on Livingston in the Scottish Premiership.

The Parkhead club are hoping to extend their gap at the top of the table ahead of both St Mirren and Rangers, who play later on.

Despite several players still being out injured and Champions League suspensions to consider, Rodgers has made just one from the team that went down 2-0 against Feyenoord in Rotterdam.

James Forrest makes his first start of the season as he replaces Luis Palma on the right wing.
