Thomas Gravesen makes his Celtic debut in the early Bank of Scotland Premier League clash with Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

The midfielder pulls on the Hoops jersey for the first time since his move from Real Madrid, with Stephen Pearson making way.

Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink also makes his first Celtic start having come off the bench to score the winner against Hibernian last month, and he comes in at the expense of Scotland hero Kenny Miller, who dropped to the bench with David Marshall as Artur Boruc returned.

Aberdeen manager Jimmy Calderwood also made three changes with debutant Lee Miller, Gary Dempsey and Michael Hart coming for John Stewart, Dyron Daal and Karim Touzani.
