Nir Bitton has made his return from injury during the international break, and that will come as a big boost for Celtic.

The versatile midfielder played the full 90 minutes for Isreal during their disappointing defeat to Austria, his first taste of action since hobbling off in the Glasgow Derby win, and teammate Hatem Abd Elhamed was also in action.

Bitton was booked in Israel’s 3-1 defeat, as their hopes of automatic qualification for Euro 2020 were dealt a huge blow.

While it was certainly a difficult night for Bitton and Elhamed for their country, the former’s return to fitness will come as a huge boost for Celtic following the international break.

Bitton had been a consistent figure filling in at the back prior to his injury, and his return to the side clearly bolsters Lennon’s options both in defence and midfield.

The likes of Kristoffer Ajer and Callum McGregor have both appeared in need of a rest in recent weeks, and Bitton’s return will give Lennon the opportunity to rotate the pair out of the side.

Do you think Bitton is an important player for Celtic?
