Team’s Up – Naismith names Hearts XI for Celtic clash

Steven Naismith has named his Hearts team for the Premiership clash against Celtic this afternoon. The Tynecastle side are certain to finish third but will be keen to continue a run of two wins in a row against Celtic.

Hearts set up in their usual 3-5-2 shape, which looks to bring the best out of Lawrence Shankland and dominate the middle of the park.

Hearts: Clark, Lembikisa, Rowles, Kent, Kingsley, Cochrane, Devlin, Baningime, Grant, Vargas, Shankland.

Subs: Gordon, Oda, Atkinson, Forrest, McKay, Sibbick, Denholm, Fraser, Tagawa.

Meanwhile, it is the same again from Brendan Rodgers as he looks to exact some revenge over the Jambos.

Celtic: Hart, Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor, McGregor, O’Riley, Hatate, Kuhn, Forrest, Kyogo.

Subs: Bain, Palma, Idah, Yang, Nawrocki, Iwata, Bernardo, Maeda, Ralston.

Celtic will look to open up a six point lead over Rangers, who play tomorrow, by getting all three points this afternoon.

    Really disappointed with ‘same old’ Rodgers.
    Hearts are physical, I’d have Rocky at centre half, with Scales at left back. I’d drop McGregor and use Iwata and I’d play Kyogo AND Idah.
