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

The full match squad is as follows:

Starting XI – Hart, Taylor, Starfelt, Bitton, Abada, Turnbull, Rogic, Carter-Vickers, McGregor, Forrest, Juranovic.

Substitutes – Bain, McCarthy, Johnston, Shaw, Henderson, Ralston, Welsh.

The headline news is that Kyogo Furuhashi does not feature in the match squad today despite his injury not thought to be as bad as first feared.

It’s unclear exactly which attacking players will fit in where, as James Forrest and Liel Abada both start with Tom Rogic and David Turnbull. Nir Bitton has also been added to the midfield.

Today’s performance will be fascinating to witness as a result!

Three points are a necessity regardless of who features where.

Fan reaction to Celtic team vs Motherwell

There’s certainly intrigue about what we’ll see from Ange Postecoglou and his team today.

With nobody really knowing what the attacking shape will be, it’s a head-scratcher.

However, there is hope we still have enough about us to do damage to the Steelmen’s backline.
