Neil Lennon has just explained his goalkeeping decision in his pre-match interview on Celtic TV. The two big changes fans would want to know about is the starting place giving to both Fraser Forster in goal and Bayo playing up front.

Regarding the goalkeeper, the manager explained that on Thursday night Fraser Forster is not eligible for selection. If anything was to happen to Craig Gordon today then Celtic would be in trouble come Thursday night without any senior goalkeeper to select. Lennon confirmed Craig Gordon will start on Thursday night in Stockholm. Makes perfect sense but there will be some nerves with big Fraser around Celtic Park today after spending so much time out of the first-team action.

Lennon named fatigue as a reason for so many changes but fans will want to know why Bayo got the call up over Griffiths who has looked red hot since he came back into the fold. The reality is at some point Bayo has to be giving a chance to start a lot of fans have moaned about not seen him in action. They will get their wish today.
