Team’s Up – Yang and Idah start, Kyogo benched

Brendan Rodgers has named his Celtic team for this evening’s Cinch Premiership game against Dundee. The manager has decided to start with Adam Idah, who’s two goals turned Celtic’s Sunday afternoon around. The Irishman replaces Kyogo in the starting XI.

Cameron Carter-Vickers comes in for Maik Nawrocki and Yang starts instead of Kuhn.

Joe Hart will start in goals. The Englishman made a huge save at 1-1 to deny Lennon Miller on Sunday and has been in outstanding form since the return from the winter break. In defence, Alistair Johnston and Greg Taylor continue in the full back berths with Liam Scales partnering CCV.

In the midfield, Tomoki Iwata starts in the deeper role with the Celtic captain Callum McGregor and Matt O’Riley in the more advanced roles.

In attack, Adam Idah will lead the line. The Irishman will likely be supported by Daizen Maeda on the left and Yang on the right. The South Korean winger will be hoping to take his chance this evening, as showing potential in flashes isn’t going to be enough.

Bench: Bain, Palma, Kyogo, Kuhn, Bernardo, Vata, Kelly, Welsh
