Team’s Up – Bernabei, Abada and Oh all start for Celtic at Ibrox

Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic side for the Glasgow Derby at Ibrox this afternoon in what is a dead rubber match. Some supporters are saying there is no such thing but the league is won and this game will not influence that in any way at all, so a dead rubber it is.

Celtic are unbeaten in five matches against theRangers this season and have ended their interest in winning all three domestic trophies. The Celtic players today have a tremendous opportunity to complete an unbeaten season spanning the league, League Cup and the Scottish Cup today, and five wins and on draw is the way to go Bhoys!

The Celtic goalkeeper today is John Hart and the back four is as widely anticipated with Anthony Ralston and Alexander Bernabei in the wide positions and Carl Starfelt and Yuki Kobayashi in the centre of the Celtic defence.

In midfield the skipper Callum McGregor is joined by Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley, who is maybe due a goal in this fixture!

Liel Abada comes in on the right wing while Jota is on the left with Oh leading the line and looking to pile on more agony after scoring five times against Mick Beale’s side this year.

On the bench for Celtic this afternoon are Bain, Taylor, Hakšabanović, Maeda, Mooy, Turnbull, Kyogo, Iwata, Forrest and Summers.

Kick-off is fast approaching at 12.30pm, for the undercover Celtic fans at Ibrox today (we have one of our Bhoys there) stay safe and keep the poker face to you are back among friends.

  1. Looks like we have stopped. An absolutely dreadful performance. From the team selection to the innumerable misplaced passes. Awful. Good job it is meaningless Could end up 5. Worse performance at Ibrox since 5-1.

  2. Anthony McGonigale on

    If Ange learns anything from today it is the fact that the players he gave an opportunity to failed miserably. Even Callum McGregor who earlier claimed there is no such thing as a dead rubber played like a dead rubber. This was as bad a display from the Bhoys as Ii have seen in 15 years and any talk of having a successful Champions League is a joke. We need a playmaker, a left back, keeper, and wingers who can actually feed Kyogo. Ange has to take the blame for today as he had too much faith in squad players that are simply not good enough and never will be
