Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team vs St Johnstone for this evening’s Scottish League Cup semi-final, per the official club website.

The full match squad is as follows:

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

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

Today’s a big one for Celtic’s season and the forward momentum of Postecoglou’s project. Reaching a final of a national cup competition would be another significant step on the road to success.

The manager has named a strong eleven for the encounter as you’d expect. In fact, it’s exactly the same team that faced off against Dundee successfully a couple of weeks ago before the international break.
