The question about today’s team selection was always going to be if Brendan Rodgers would choose a team based on a Glasgow Derby showdown on Saturday. You also have to take into consideration that a lot of Celtic players laid it out on the line against Aberdeen in a 3-0 win on Saturday.
Celtic are two games away from a 3-week winter break. The players have faced a grueling fixture list and today’s game seemed the most obvious to be making changes.
Rodgers chose to go with Griffiths up front today. Johnny Hayes and Ajer also hold onto their starting places. McGregor comes in for Armstrong.
