Celtic manager Neil Lennon is set to make changes for the visit of Clydesdale Bank Premier League bottom club Dundee amid a busy period for the champions.

Celtic's 1-1 draw against St Johnstone on Tuesday was their fourth midweek game in five weeks with more to come in subsequent Wednesdays against Motherwell and Juventus.

The free midweek saw most of Lennon's side away on international duty and he will mix up his side when managerless Dundee travel to the east end of Glasgow.

Lennon expects to have defender Mikael Lustig and striker Georgios Samaras back after injury but is still waiting to hear if captain Scott Brown needs surgery on an abductor problem.

Lennon told Celtic TV: "I will make some changes. We have got the Motherwell game next Wednesday and I will rotate the squad, but not too much.

"I will maybe give some of the fringe players an opportunity to play.

"That's no disrespect to Dundee because they have got a good squad and they are all itching to play."
