Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team for tonight’s match away to Ferencvaros in the UEFA Europa League, per UEFA.com.

The full match squad is as follows:

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

Substitutes – Bain, Oluwayemi, Scales, Giakoumakis, Soro, McCarthy, Johnston, Urhoghide, Shaw, Murray, Forrest, Montgomery.

Tonight’s a crucial encounter for Celtic hopes of playing European football after Christmas.

A win is needed to keep a bid to qualify for the Europa League knockouts on track. Avoiding defeat in any scenario would also be a boost to chances of finishing third in the group and entering the Conference League.

Elsewhere, Stephen Welsh comes into the side for the injured Carl Starfelt.

Fan reaction to Celtic team vs Ferencvaros

This is pretty much the team most fans expected. Welsh is right option to come in defensively, while it’s good to see Kyogo starting after being on the bench against Livingston.

There’s enough talent in this team to pick up a decent result tonight. Hopefully, the Bhoys can show the attacking ambition to pick up all three points.
