Start as you mean to go on. Celtic will have to pick up from where they left off at Murryfield last Sunday when they dismantled Hearts. A 3-0 scoreline does not reflect on a superb 45 minutes for the Bhoys.
I can’t think back to a worse season with injuries to Celtic players but this season has been a disaster. Eboue Kouassi is out for the rest of the season with Daniel Arzani having similar problems. Celtic’s centre backs have taking turns on injuries since the start of the season. Leigh Griffiths has “fitness” problems. Jozo Simunovic, Cristian Gamboa and Scott Brown are also out of contention.
These injuries have provided opportunities to others. Scott Sinclair and Ryan Christie seem to be taking them opportunities with both hands. Both players have been rewarded with a starting place today. Craig Gordon returns between the sticks while Boyata comes in for Ajer. With Ntcham returning from injury you could argue that this is a much strong team that ran riot on Sunday.
Celtic have won 14 of their last 15 home league games against Hearts, drawing the other 0-0 in September 2015. Kick Off from Paradise is 3pm.
