Manager Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team vs St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership today, per the official club website.
The full match squad is as follows:
Starting XI – Hart, Ralston, Starfelt, Welsh, Taylor, McGregor, Turnbull, Christie, Abada, Edouard, Kyogo.
Substitutes – Bain, Bitton, Ajeti, Soro, Rogic, Urhoghide, Montgomery.
Celtic have won five matches in a row, making great progress under the new boss. However, as we know, these wins need to continue.
Today’s match against St Mirren is no less important than the rest of the matches in recent weeks and three points are the order of the day.
Despite the heavy schedule, Postecoglou has named another very strong eleven for the encounter, reflecting how keen he is to continue this momentum.
The attacking talent we have in the team today is extraordinary, with Ange clearly going for the jugular of a managerless Buddies today.
It’s all set to be a very exciting afternoon.
Today’s game is being streamed on the Pass To Paradise service for season ticket holders.
Celtic TV are also broadcasting the game to subscribers for this separate service outside the UK and Ireland.
There is no match coverage on Sky Sports.
However, BBC Radio Scotland will be providing full audio commentary of the fixture over the airwaves and online.

The return of Ryan Christie has delighted many. He’s been in great form today and giving him a run, while resting Tom Rogic, seems like a clever move.

It could be another great day and these supporters have taken to social media to share their thoughts…

Celtic playing the same GK and defenders for the 5th game in a row. I reckon you’ve got to look pre-Lennon for the last time that happened? https://t.co/7Axvmo3N1B— Jamie Kilday (@fitbainscotland) August 21, 2021

Postecoglou going for the throat here in league games. Thought there might’ve been some more changes for Thursday than that.— CáI (@CaIMcI) August 21, 2021
