Celtic and a Hibs play in front of a sold out Celtic Park this. Afternoon as the Bhoys try and topple the Edinburgh high flyers.

Ahead of the game we have the very latest team news from the Celtic camp.

There looks like there will be at least two changes to the team who steam rolled St Johnstone two weeks ago.

Scott Brown is set to come back in after missing Celtic’s previous two games while Leigh Griffiths is almost certainly out of the tie.

Rodgers said the striker was a doubt but has since followed up with a more definite answer that Leigh isn’t fit enough to play.

This leaves Edouard as the sole fit striker today.

Kristoffer Ajer is still out injured at the moment and won’t be available.

Jozo Simunovic is pushing for a start alongside countryman Filip Benkovic. It’s all comes down to if Rodgers wants to pair both players before the semi-final against Hearts next weekend.

With Boyata suspended for the tie, it will more than likely be Jozo and Filip who start the semi-final at Murrayfield.

It’s a big day for the bhoys who could leapfrog Hibernian this afternoon with a win.
