Manager Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team vs Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership, per the official club website.

The full match squad is as follows:

Starting XI – Hart, Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Welsh, Juranovic, McCarthy, McGregor, Abada, Turnbull, Jota, Kyogo.

Substitutes – Bain, Scales, Ajeti, Soro, Johnston, Forrest, Montgomery.

With ground still to be made up in the league table, a crucial three points are on the line today that Celtic simply must win.

Form has been good over the last two months, but Postecoglou’s side will be looking to bounce back from an energy-sapping defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday night.

The headline team news is that Tom Rogic hasn’t won his battle with fitness to feature today with James McCarthy coming into the team for Nir Bitton. It’s McCarthy’s first start since the 1-1 draw against Dundee United in September.

Elsewhere it’s a familiar look to the team with the attacking trio of Jota, Kyogo and Liel Abada all starting.
