It’s no secret that Celtic have not been firing on all cylinders so far this season. Team selections over the past few weeks suggest that Brendan Rodgers is still trying to work out his best formation and with what players.

Rodgers has not been afraid to tinker with his starting 11 and has sometimes been accused of making too many changes at once. It’s a fine balance and the Celtic manager has a lot of fine tuning to do in order to provide the Celtic team fans have watched over the last couple of seasons.

Watching Celtic fall apart in Austria the other night it’s become too easy to blame defenders. Yes, it’s true they are at fault for goals but Rodgers has been soaked in bad luck with defenders and injuries over the past month. The midfield was also overrun in the second half. It would be nice to see Lewis Morgan with a start against St Johnstone. He could replace either McGregor or Ntcham.

The Celtic gaffer has already confirmed Scott Brown will not feature tomorrow. You’d imagine Mulumbu is the straight swap for Brown. Tom Rogic is back for selection after injury which will be a huge attacking boost.

Brendan Rodgers spoke this week about building some consistency with performances, after that game tomorrow, domestic action will end for two weeks for international games.


  1. What we need to do is cut the size of the squad to 22 players the rest can be made up from the best home growing young lads we have.22 players is good we can only give game time to 14 players at any game so we need to cut the squad and get weed out the dead wood and bring in some top players this needs done by january but we can bring in any new faces at any time so lets do this Celtic bring them in and send the dead wood home and put them up for sale…

  2. Last week Hoops had two up front against Red Bull, but no strikers on the bench. No strong holding midfielders. And got pumped by the Austrians (couldve been a yet another Barca score) St Brendan didn’t change the team that much on that night, but is a league and like the Psfl losing a game or two you could still procced if you drop less points than other teams. Well Celtic you have a whole lot of winning and work to do on both fronts to succeed. So do it, and make Peter ‘out’ Lawwell happy with the credit card recipts, until January, then the May season ticket demands come through the door.
