Celtic begin the defence of their Scottish Premiership title with a visit to Scottish Cup winners St Johnstone this evening.

"We want to perform well and will do everything we can to do it" - Ronny Deila
Defender Jason Denayer goes straight
into the squad having arrived on loan
from Manchester City.

But fellow newcomer Aleksandar Tonev is carrying a slight knock and won't be involved while either Craig Gordon or Lukasz Zaluska will replace the departed Fraser Forster.

"We have played a lot of matches in pre-season and a lot in the Champions League but now the league is starting and it's important to use it to get good results and develop the squad and the team in the right direction," manager Ronny Deila told BBC Scotland. "We want to perform well and will do everything we can to do it.

"We know that St Johnstone is an opportunity for us to show ourselves as a good side and we're going to do that."

St Johnstone have full-back Brian Easton available following ankle trouble but Murray Davidson [knee] remains out.
