It would seem unfathomable just three weeks ago, but Brendan Rodgers has a big decision to make ahead of the crunch tie with Hibernian on Saturday.

Celtic won a whopping 6-0 in their last SPFL outing against St Johnstone with the team clicking properly for the first time this season to deadly effect.

Before the break Scott Brown was out injured for both the Salzburg and St Johnstone game and while the Scotsman was missed for the disappointment in Austria, the same can’t be said for the match in Perth.

So will Brendan Rodgers go with an unchanged side against Hibs and leave Scott Brown out the starting I or is he simply too valuable and needed in a game where Hibs are likely to give as good as they get?

St Johnstone tried to sit in, like may clubs this season and frustrate Celtic but that’s not usually Hibs’ motivation, and they’re likely to attack Celtic whenever possible.

Can the team that ran riot in Perth do the same against Hibs given the chance?

That is the big question facing Brendan Rodgers as he welcomes his international stars back to Lennoxtown.


  1. We should always play our best eleven at the start of every game!. That includes our captain Broonie!. Yes we won six nil at Perth, but Hibs are a slightly different kind of challenge!. One which I have no hesitation in saying we will win, by at least two goals, but Hibs will come at us and then we can destroy them! Hail Hail.

  2. St Johnstone didn’t sit in. That was the point. They had a go and got punished, but they were right to try, because up until that point Celtic were there for the taking. Fingers crossed our form continues against the Hibees. Wish there was more news on all our injuries on here. Just seems like a lot of BS news stories about nuffin.

  3. If play is quicker without brown what is the problem we beat Killie 5 -1 with out Brown’s type of sideways play at times he becomes peter pointer when he ain’t on the ball yet once he has the ball its a pass back and waste about 15 to 20 min of play time if their are 5 defenders in the box there are no excuse for 5 attackers in there also and no need for strikers taking corners no player is bigger than the club
