Team’s Up – Steven Naismith names Hearts side for Celtic clash

Steven Naismith has named his Hearts team for this afternoon’s Cinch Premiership clash against Celtic. The hosts will look to frustrate Celtic and limit their chances whilst hoping their talisman Lawrence Shankland can strike for them.

Hearts: Clark, Sibbick, Rowles, Kingsley, Lembikisa, Nieuwenhof, Baningime, Grant, Cochrane, Forrest, Shankland.

Subs: Gordon, Atkinson, Devlin, Denholm, Pollock, Tait, Fraser, Tagawa, Wilson.

Elsewhere, Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has made one change with Paulo Bernardo coming in for the injured Callum McGregor.

Hart, Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor, Iwata, O’Riley, Bernardo, Yang, Idah, Maeda.

Subs: Bain, Lagerbielke, Palma, Kyogo, Kühn, Holm, Kelly, Ralston, Welsh.

The game kicks off at 12 Noon with Celtic hoping that they can continue on from their performances in the second half against Motherwell and first half against Dundee.

The Well have handed Celtic a massive title incentive after they walked away from Ibrox with all three points yesterday.
