Manager Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team vs Motherwell for today’s Scottish Premiership match at Celtic Park.
The full squad is as follows:
Starting XI – Hart, Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor, McGregor, Iwata, O’Riley, Haksabanovic, Maeda, Kyogo.
Substitutes – Bain, Mooy, Turnbull, Kobayashi, Oh, Bernabei, Summers, Ralston, Vata.
Celtic can move 15 points clear at the top of the table this afternoon and are now just a few positive results away from retaining the title. The manager will be going with a strong eleven until that is achieved.
There is just one change from the starting line-up that trounced Kilmarnock at Rugby Park and it’s a welcome one. Cameron Carter-Vickers is back in the team after being rested, restoring his successful partnership with Carl Starfelt.
Sead Haksabanovic gets another chance to impress at Celtic Park, with the manager possessing attacking options such as Hyeongyu Oh, David Turnbull and Rocco Vata on the bench if needed.

Today’s match is not being shown in the UK & Ireland, with tomorrow’s fixture between Aberdeen and Rangers live on Sky Sports instead, alongside this afternoon’s Hearts and Ross County game.
Celtic TV are broadcasting the game to overseas subscribers to the club service, but there is no pay-per-view option on these shores.
No other channels will be showing the game anywhere around the world, so that is your only option.
However, BBC Radio Scotland will be providing live audio commentary as usual.
Instant verdict on Celtic team vs Motherwell
There are zero complaints with today’s team. In fact, it’s the exact eleven we felt should and would feature in the game, as we discussed earlier.
Personally, watching the midfield three again is what I’m looking forward to most. I think this is a high-potential combination and we’ll surely see Callum McGregor, Tomoki Iwata and Matt O’Riley relish the opportunity of playing on the big, open Celtic Park pitch.
With Kyogo Furuhashi chasing his 30th goal this season, Alistair Johnston still emerging as a prime right flank pick and lots more to come from Haksabanovic, hopefully we have an entertaining afternoon ahead.
