Team’s Up – Harper and Johnston up top, Hazard in goals

First team coach Gavin Strachan takes charge of the team tonight, supported by Reserve team Manager, Tommy McIntyre and Reserve team coach, Stephen McManus  with manager Neil Lennon and his Assistant John Kennedy both self isolating.

Conor Hazard is in goals, the back four is Frimpong, Duffy, Welsh and Laxalt. In the middle of the park Celtic are able to field Soro, Turnbull and Rogic and captain Callum McGregor and up front the two are Cameron Harper and Mikey Johnston.

Subs are Doohan, Taylor, Connell, Coffey, Oko-Flex, Henderson, Ralston, Hjelde and Karamoko.

That means we can include the likes of Barkas, Bain, Ajer, Brown, Ntcham, Elhamed, Christie, Griffiths, Klimala, Ajeti and Edouard in the omissions due to the self isolation rules after Christopher Jullien’s positive test. Maybe Bitton too although as he’s suspended we can’t guess if he’s self isolating. Who have we missed?

Hopefully Gavin Strachan has had time to charge his iPad or we could be in serious trouble.
