Manager Ange Postecoglou has confirmed his Celtic team vs AZ Alkmaar tonight, per the official UEFA website.

The full match squad is as follows:

Starting XI – Hart, Ralston, Welsh, Starfelt, Taylor, McGregor, Turnbull, Rogic, Abada, Christie, Kyogo.

Substitutes – Barkas, Bain, Bitton, Ajeti, Soro, Edouard, Bolingoli, Urhoghide, Shaw, Robertson, Montgomery.

Celtic hold a two-goal aggregate lead heading into tonight’s encounter but that hasn’t stopped the manager from fielding an attacking team.

As we’ve come to expect, the manager is going all out. We’ll be going for the jugular in the Netherlands.
