The 21-year-old completed a £4.5million move from Manchester City earlier this month.

He will get his first taste of a packed Celtic Park as Brendan Rodgers’ side look to protect their 2-0 lead from the first leg and advance to the third qualifying round.

Elsewhere, there is no place for Leigh Griffiths after the striker picked up a calf strain.

Celtic team: Gordon; Lustig, Simunovic, Tierney; Brown; Forrest, McGregor, Ntcham, Sinclair; Rogic; Dembele.

Subs: De Vries, Bitton, Armstrong, Hayes, Benyu, Sviatchenko, Kouassi
