JOSIP JURANOVIC has not been listed in tonight’s squad in Aberdeen. His manager did not rule out the right-back in the pre-match. However, he did not appear in the Lennoxtown video Celtic posted on Wednesday.

Ralston takes the spot as he did on Sunday. It’s a big night for the Scottish player in what will undoubtedly be a tough match.
Juranovic has been brilliant for Celtic so far, and he’s been quality whether he plays on the left or right. The Croatian can get himself up and down the side of the pitch and come more central when required. He has even been lethal from the 12-yard spot.
Ralston was suitable for the first half of the season when he was called upon; however, his performances have dipped more recently.
The team will need to play well tonight and be clinical in front of the goal to guarantee the top spot and avoid a long bus journey home.
