Celtic boss ready to tinker

Celtic boss Neil Lennon has hinted he will reshuffle his team for Sunday's Scottish Premiership match against Inverness.

The Hoops travel to the Highlands looking to stretch their unbeaten league run to 21 games, against third-placed Caley Thistle.

Adam Matthews returned from a fever to start against St Johnstone on Thusrday but was replaced early in the second-half by winger James Forrest who continued his recovery from a recent thigh strain.

Despite the absence of Charlie Mulgrew, Dirk Boerrigter, Mikael Lustig, Beram Kayal and Steven Mouyokolo, the Celtic manager has been delighted with his team's consistency.

Lennon said: "We have tried to balance the squad because we have two really hard away games back-to-back.

"Particularly Adam and James. Adam is still recovering from the virus and he was a bit heavy-legged in the second-half but I think he'll be in contention for Sunday.

"James will be in contention for a start and I don't think we have any fresh injuries which is a good thing.

"The squad is a bit thin. We have six or seven out at the moment. But the players who have been the bulk of the side have been great, we're unbeaten and I can't ask any more."
