Brendan Rodgers has named his Celtic side to face Livingston - with Reo Hatate back in.

The Parkhead boss - who will be in the stands as he serves a Scottish FA ban - has made two changes from the team that beat St Johnstone two weeks ago.

Hatate and Liam Scales come in with Stephen Welsh and Paulo Bernardo dropping to the bench.
