CHRIS SUTTON believes Rodgers has made a ‘big call’ by fielding Scott Bain this afternoon over Craig Gordon.
It’s unclear if the goalkeeper is struggling with an injury or if he believes Bain is the right man on the day.
The Celtic number one is on the bench for the early afternoon kick-off and would be called upon if anything was to happen to Bain.
Elsewhere, Sutton notes the inclusion of Ajer which has surprised many people today and Forrest and Rogic back in the side.
.@btsportfootball Big call from Brendan Rodgers with Scott Bain starting in goal. Ajer fit and Rogic and Forrest back in.. Hearts Haring and Lee back in… your thoughts and score prediction??

It’s going to be a big day for Scott Bain in goals.
The 26-year-old hasn’t played many games for Celtic since coming in during the January window.
They don’t get much bigger than this and it will be a true test of his resolve.
Celtic having Scott Brown and Leigh Griffiths out of the tie is another blow but the squad has managed to handle things on a domestic front without either in the last few games.
