Team News: Celtic face injury problems for Inverness Caledonian Thistle clash

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has to contend with several injuries to key players ahead of the visit of Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Celtic are missing several players due to injury as they prepare for the visit against table-topping Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Neil Lennon must do without the services of Georgios Samaras, Derk Beorrigter, Anthony Stokes and Kris Commons.

Meanwhile James Forrest is to see a neurologist in an effort to overcome a sciatica problem.

Youngster Tony Watt will lead the line for the injury-ridden champions at Celtic Park.

Thistle manager Terry Butcher will look to in-form Billy Mckay to unlock the hosts' defence.

Mckay's exploits have led to the striker being called up by Northern Ireland for their forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Celtic: Forster; Matthews, Ambrose, Van Dijk, Izaguirre; Brown, Kayal, Rogic, Mulgrew; Amido, Watt

Inverness CT: Brill, Raven, Warren, Meekings, Shinnie, Foran, Draper, Doran, Vincent, Ross, Mckay
