Substitutes – Bain, Bitton, Klimala, Soro, Turnbull, Rogic, Edouard, Elyounoussi, Forrest.

Celtic have a massive chance to go top of the table today, with Hibernian and Rangers not playing each other until tomorrow.

A win would put us level on points with the Ibrox side but we’d be ahead on goal difference.

Considering the anxiety in the wake of Boli Bolingoli’s disaster that resulted in two games postponed, that would be terrific for the Bhoys.

The manager has gone with a strong eleven but has sprung a surprise by naming Odsonne Edouard on the bench.

Albian Ajeti gets the nod in attack but it looks to be a change from the 3-5-2 that we’ve seen in recent matches.

What the exact shape and set-up is obviously remains to be seen and it’ll be interesting when the whistle blows.

The bench is again ridiculously strong with Tom Rogic making it back into the matchday squad.

Fan reaction

There’s trepidation out there after today’s team was announced.

The fact our best player, Edouard, is on the bench is confusing for some as is the continued reliance on a defensive midfielder in Scott Brown.

Rogic appearing on the bench and Jeremie Frimpong starting has gone down well however.

Ultimately the manager knows best after training with the team all week and hopefully the players out there have more than enough for Livingston on our own patch.
