  • Simunovic returns for Celtic in the Parc des Princes

    Simunovic returns for Celtic in the Parc des Princes

    By: Mark Henderson in Paris on 22 Nov, 2017 18:30

  • JOZO Simunovic will feature for Celtic for the first time in eight weeks after being named in the starting XI to face Paris Saint-Germain in tonight’s UEFA Champions League clash in the Parc des Princes.

    The 23-year-old has been absent for the Scottish treble-winners since helping them to a 3-0 win away to Anderlecht in the competition at the end of September.

    But in a boost to Brendan Rodgers’ side, he has returned to full fitness and will take his place in a back-three for the Hoops, alongside Mikael Lustig and Dedryck Boyata.

    The inclusion of the defender is one of three changes to the team that saw off Ross County in the league at the weekend, with Olivier Ntcham and Tom Rogic also coming into the side. Nir Bitton, Stuart Armstrong and Scott Sinclair are the players to drop out.

    France Under-21 internationalist Moussa Dembele will lead the line for the visitors in Paris as he comes up against his former employers for the first time as a Celtic player.

    Kick-off in the Parc des Princes is 8.45pm (local time), and head to @celticfc for all the pre-game build-up and live match updates.

    CELTIC (3-4-2-1) Gordon; Lustig, Boyata, Simunovic; Forrest, Brown, Ntcham, Tierney; Rogic, McGregor; Dembele
    Subs: De Vries, Bitton, Roberts, Griffiths, Sinclair, Armstrong, Kouassi
