McGregor on the bench

Joe Hart makes his final appearance for Celtic at Ibrox today and will have a solid looking back before protecting his clean sheet. Canadian right back Alister Johnston relishes these encounters and he is joined by Celtic’s Big Strong Man Cameron Carter-Vickers and Irish international Liam Scales. Scotland left back Greg Taylor makes up the Celtic back four.

In midfield Tomoki Iwata retains the No6 role with the two forward looking number 8s being Matt O’Riley and Reo Hatate.

Kyogo through the middle

The front three are Nicolas Kuhn on the right, Daizen Maeda on the left and Kyogo through the middle.

It’s a strong Celtic team and Brendan Rodgers also has a very strong bench at his disposal. The Celtic substitutes are Bain, Idah, Yang, Nawrocki, Bernardo, McGregor, Forrest, Ralston and Welsh.

Kick-off is at 12 noon.
