CELTIC are in Hamilton ahead of Saturday’s early kick-off and we can’t wait to see the bhoys back in action after the international break.
Last time we saw them all in action they were celebrating a fine victory at Ibrox after the media wrote them off as a threat to Steven Gerrard’s men. This is a different type of game today but no less important than the Ibrox victory.
Neil Lennon has warned against complacency and the potential banana skin at New Douglas Park. A smaller crowd and artificial surface gives this game a very different feel from the one just gone. The old bhoys will know exactly to expect but it will be the new lads who will have to adjust.
Neil Lennon has often been a man of misdirection since coming back to Celtic. The Irishman tells the media players will be fit or starting and then they don’t appear in the squad at all. However, here’s what we know before kick-off.
Latest team news.
Nir Bitton is out for a couple of weeks after sustaining an injury at Ibrox.
Tom Rogic is fit and back in contention. The player also shedding a few pounds from last season.
Kristoffer Ajer is also back in contention for a spot in the team after his injury at AIK away.
Mikey Johnston will miss the game in the hope of being ready for Rennes on Thursday.
There could be debuts for Greg Taylor and Mohamad Elyounoussi.
Elhamed played both international games with his country and looks to be over his injury which kept him off the training field for ten days before his heroic Ibrox performance.
We’re looking for a strong Celtic win today to put pressure on the chasing pack.
