The Celtic team is out and Neil Lennon has named a strong side but the biggest surprise of all is Scott Brown starts from the bench.
Many thought the Celtic manager would pull Ismaila Soro from the starting XI in favour of the veteran midfielder today for such a high profile hame. However, Lenny has gave Ismaila the chance to shine after coming in the past month and being a revelation.
It’s a big call in a big game and Soro must not repay the faith Neil Lennon has shown in him.
The Celtic captain could come on later in the game and help steady things. Callum McGregor rightfully wearing the armband in Brown’s absence.
There’s only one change from the game against Dundee Utd and it was forced due to Christopher Jullien picking up an injury against Utd. The Frenchman was stretchered off during the win at Celtic Park and took a nasty knock to the post.
Barkas getting the nod is big and the player must show he’s got something in his locker; he will be tested from the off.
A strong side with experience on the bench. Still no Klimala in the squad, not sure if he’s injured or not.
