Team’s Up – Kyogo starts, O’Riley in midfield

Ange Postecoglou has named his team for this afternoon’s game against Rangers at Celtic Park. The Australian manager can all but clinch the title with three points over our Glasgow rivals.

In goals, Joe Hart starts. The Englishman conceded twice at Hampden but will be keen to register a clean sheet.

In defence, Tony Ralston starts at right back as Josip Juranovic remains out with a knock. Greg Taylor, who scored at Hampden, starts at left back. Cameron Carter-Vickers partners Carl Starfelt in the heart of the defence.

In midfield, Callum McGregor starts at the base of the midfield. The captain is joined by Matt O’Riley and Reo Hatate. The latter pair will look to rectify a quiet afternoon the last time the sides met.

In attack, Kyogo leads the line. The Japanese striker will be looking to battle with the Rangers defenders and provide another dimension in attack. Jota starts on the right and it is Daizen Maeda on the left.

On the bench: Bain, Bitton, Giakoumakis, Abada, Turnbull, McCarthy, Rogic, Forrest, Welsh.

It is a huge game and one that would dispel the disappointment of the Scottish Cup exit.
