Lustig set for Celtic start

Mikael Lustig is set to start for Celtic in Sunday’s clash with Dundee United at Tannadice.

Manager Neil Lennon, today named SPL manager of the month for April, is looking to give the Sweden international defender some game time before he goes off to the European Championships in the summer.

Lennon, who made seven changes for the 1-0 home win over St Johnstone last night, will tinker with his side again but midfielder Ki Sung-yueng (hamstring) and winger James Forrest (ankle) are still out.

Provisional squad: Zaluska, Cha, Kelvin Wilson, Rogne, Izaguirre, McGeouch, Hooper, Wanyama, Ledley, Commons, Ibrahim, Bangura, Stokes, Forster, Brozek, Lustig, Blackman, Samaras, Loovens, Mulgrew.
