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

Nick Montgomery has named his Hibernian side for this evening’s Cinch Premiership clash with Celtic. The visitors from the other side of the M8 were 1-0 winners when they hosted Aberdeen at Easter Road on Sunday and will be looking to equally frustrate Brendan Rodgers’ team.

Montgomery, who wants his teams to play in a certain attacking manner, has named a typically adventurous team as he sticks to his 4-4-2.

Hibs team v Celtic: Marshall, Miller, Fish, Bushiri, Stevenson, Levitt, Newell, Campbell, Tavares, Boyle, Youan.

Subs: Wollacott, Hanlon, Vente, Jeggo, Doidge, Harbottle, Molotnikov, Whittaker, Landers.

Celtic are unbeaten in 17 home league games against Hibs, with 13 wins and 4 draws, since a 2-1 defeat under Tony Mowbray in 2010. Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers is looking for a reaction from his team after it left him fuming. The Irishman has made three changes, with Oh, Tomoki Iwata and Mikey Johnston being called up.

Celtic: Hart, A.Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor, McGregor, Iwata, O’Riley, M.Johnston, Palma, Oh.

Subs: Bain, Phillips, Kyogo, Turnbull, Holm, Tilio, Bernardo, Forrest, Ralston.

However, he has won just 3 of his 8 league meetings against Hibs – his lowest win ratio against any team in the Premiership, including Rangers.
