Neil Lennon makes big call on Albian Ajeti after dive ban offer in Motherwell Parkhead clash


Celtic boss Neil Lennon has opted to start Albian Ajeti as the club prepare to challenge his ban for simulation.

The striker was offered a two match suspension for taking a fall against Kilmarnock and winning a penalty under the challenge of Colin Doyle in midweek.

The SFA confirmed they had opted to retrospectively punish the Celtic man but furious Hoops insisted they would appeal.

And Ajeti STARTS this afternoon at Parkhead alongside Odsonne Edouard against Motherwell.

New loan signing Jonjoe Kenny also makes his first appearance at home and Stephen Welsh keeps his place.

Celtic XI: Bain, Kenny, Welsh, Ajer, Taylor, Brown, McGregor, Turnbull, Rogic, Ajeti, Edouard.

Subs: Barkas, Duffy, Griffiths, Klimala, Soro, Johnston, Elyounoussi, Henderson, Laxalt.

Motherwell XI: Kelly, O’Donnell, Mugabi, Lamie, Carroll, Crawford, Campbell, Maguire, Long, Cole, Watt.

Subs: Morrison, O’Hara, Hastie, Polworth, Cornelius, Johnston, Smith, Roberts, Magloire.
