Team’s Up – Nick Montgomery names Hibs team for Celtic clash

Nick Montgomery has named his Hibernian team for this evening’s Cinch Premiership clash against Celtic. The Scottish Champions will be hoping to win at Easter Road, a venue that they have not won at in their last two visits. Meanwhile, Hibs will be looking to do Rangers a favour and bounce back from their 3-0 home defeat to St Mirren.

Montgomery is able to call upon Miller and Boyle, who returned to Scotland from the Asian Cup on Sunday after Australia’s exit and it is clear that the Hibs boss is sticking to his preferred 4-4-2 formation.

Hibs: Marshall, Miller, Fish, Triantis, Obita, Levitt, Newell, Moriah-Welsh, Boyle, Youan, Vente.

Subs: Wollacott, Megwa, Stevenson, Amos, Mayenda, Maolida, Tavares, Molotnikov, Le Fondre.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers has made four changes from the team that drew against Aberdeen at Pittodrie. Stephen Welsh comes in for Maik Nawrocki along with Daizen Maeda, Adam Idah and Nicolas Kuhn coming in for Luis Palma, Kyogo and Liel Abada.

Celtic: Hart, Johnston, Welsh, Scales, Bernabei, McGregor, O’Riley, Bernardo, Kühn, Maeda, Idah.

Subs: Bain, Nawrocki, Ralston, Kelly, Holm, Abada, Vata, Palma, Kyogo.

The game kicks off at 8pm and is live on Sky Sports Main Event and Football from 7:30pm (Celtic Park Time).
