Celtic v St Johnstone: Changes

Two big names back in the Celtic starting XI with Cameron Carter-Vickers returning to defence and assuming the captaincy in Callum McGregor's absence. Liam Scales is the defender who drops out, due to injury.

Kyogo Furuhashi starts in attack after scoring off the bench in last weekend's Scottish Cup win over Livingston, Adam Idah moving to the bench.

St Johnstone make four changes with defenders Matthew Smith and Andy Considine starting, Graham Carey coming in to the middle of the park and Adama Sidibeh joining the attack.

Connor Smith, Nicky Clark and Benjamin Kimpioka are on the bench and Diallang Jaiyesimi misses out.
