Celtic will return to domestic action after their midweek humbling against Barcelona with a trip to Inverness.

Just three days after hammering Rangers in the Glasgow Derby, Brendan Rodgers’ opening Champions League group stage game in charge of the Hoops saw them being taught a cruel lesson also by one of the world’s best teams.

The Hoops haven’t lost to Inverness since their controversial Scottish Cup semi-final defeat in extra-time to the Highland side last year.

Rodgers will be looking for a reaction from his players after their defeat on Tuesday, and will look to maintain their place atop the table after Sunday’s clash with Inverness, who are unbeaten in their last four games.
