Republic of Ireland striker Anthony Stokes, who scored the winner in last week’s 4-3 William Hill Scottish Cup semi-final win over Dundee United at Hampden, replaced Emilio Izaguirre who started on the bench as the Hoops went looking for the point needed to retain the championship.

Caley boss Terry Butcher also made one change with Gary Warren in for Danny Devine, who was named among the substitutes.

Celtic: Forster, Lustig, Ambrose, Wilson, Mulgrew, Forrest, Wanyama, Ledley, Commons, Hooper, Stokes.

Subs: Zaluska, Izaguirre, Samaras, Rogic, McCourt, Watt, Kayal.

Inverness CT: Reguero, Raven, Warren, Meekings, Graeme Shinnie, Tudur Jones, Draper, Doran, Foran, Andrew Shinnie, McKay.

Subs: Mathieson, Hogg, Ross, Sutherland, Polworth, Devine, Taylor.

Referee: Kevin Clancy (Scotland)
