Ryan Christie starts for Celtic against Copenhagen

Jeremie Frimpong also comes into the side to make his European debut.

Ryan Christie and Jeremie Frimpong both start for Celtic in the Europa League match against FC Copenhagen in Denmark.

Neil Lennon has named his side for the first leg of the last 32 tie and was forced to make changes after Leigh Griffiths was injured in training and missed the trip.

Greg Taylor is also absent through injury with Jonny Hayes starting at left-back.

Teenage defender Frimpong starts on the opposite flank, where he’ll make his European debut.

Celtic manager Lennon looks to have changed the shape from the 3-5-2 formation that has helped the Scottish champions to an impressive run of form since the winter break.

Fraser Forster starts in goal behind a defensive line of Jonny Hayes, Christopher Jullien, Kristoffer Ajer and Frimpong.

Scott Brown, Callum McGregor and Olivier Ntcham are in midfield with Christie and James Forrest supporting striker Odsonne Edouard.

Scott Bain, Jozo Simunovic, Nir Bitton, Vakoun Bayo, Tom Rogic, Boli Bolingoli and Mo Elyounoussi are on the bench.
