Celtic’s provisional squad for the Hibernian game has been named; the list of players submitted to the league and registered to potentially play in the tie.

The squad gets trimmed down but this is the pool Neil Lennon will be choosing from on Monday.

Klimala hasn’t made the last two squads, not even a place on the bench for the Polish striker. He’ll be hoping to get back in among the side and get some game time from the bench.

Luca Connell regularly makes it into the pool of players but doesn’t get the nod. The team will basically pick itself if Neil Lennon continues with the diamond which has only seen them concede one goal in the league in four games, and that was an own goal versus Rangers.

Barkas is likely to start in goals, the biggest question will be who partners Ajer in defence. Jullien is out for 3-4 months and Nir Bitton is suspended. Shane Duffy hasn’t trained with Celtic this week but remains in the pool of players. Will he get the nod despite leaving early from Celtic’s training camp?

Welsh and Elhamed can both come in and play the position too.

Here is the full squad as reported by RecordSport:

  • Barkas
  • Bain
  • Hazard
  • Frimpong
