In our pre-match preview, we outlined the quite outstanding statics in Celtic’s favour when playing at home and also against tonight’s opponents. Celtic will play their next three league games at Paradise and they will need to get all nine points available if they are to get a grip on another league title.
One of our authors highlighted earlier today the injury and selection concerns Brendan Rodgers is facing. Even with these problems, Celtic should have enough on the pitch to blow the Buddies away. For the very short time he was on the pitch, Timothy Weah left a good impression on the majority of Celtic fans.
Despite the young American’s impact, he finds himself on the bench again. Scott Bain has managed to hold onto the No.1 jersey after his amazing ninja like saves at the weekend. Ajer comes in for Boyata. Lustig returns to the side for the injured Ralston. The decision to play Burke up front for the second game in a row will leave some Celtic fans puzzled but Brendan knows best.
📋 The team news is in for #CELSTM.
