Confirmed Celtic team vs Dundee United; Moffat on bench, stream details, fans react
Ange Postecoglou has named his Celtic team vs Dundee United in the Scottish Premiership today, per the official club website.
The full match squad is as follows:
Starting XI – Hart, Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Juranovic, Turnbull, Rogic, McCarthy, Abada, Jota, Ajeti.
Substitutions – Bain, Scales, Bitton, Soro, Welsh, Montgomery, Moffat.
Three points are a must today after Celtic watched multiple teams at the top end of the table win yesterday.
Injury problems continue to plague the Bhoys so, as expected, there is no sign of key players such as Callum McGregor and Kyogo Furuhashi.
Postecoglou has named as strong a team as he can muster with Tom Rogic, Liel Abada and Albian Ajeti all getting opportunities to impress.
The big call is at left-back where Josip Juranovic returns to the team ahead of Liam Scales and Adam Montgomery.
Exciting youngster Owen Moffat is also on the bench.
Today’s match is on the Pass To Paradise service for the season ticket holders who couldn’t make the game.
Celtic TV subscribers outside of the UK & Ireland will also have access to live coverage.
And, for the first time in a Celtic home league match, there’s a pay-per-view streaming service available to those in this region who can’t attend. That’s priced at £12.99 and can be purchased at ppv.celticfc.tv.
BBC Radio Scotland are also providing live audio coverage on the airwaves and online.
Fan reaction to Celtic team vs Dundee United
The presence of Moffat on the bench has given supporters hope of an appearance today. They’d love to see him in action after his exploits for the B team.
Elsewhere there’s a general worry at the depth on the bench.
However, it can’t be denied this is a pretty strong eleven that should have enough to take care of United today.
These fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts on it all…
Juranovic is today’s lucky dip for left back😂 Good to see Moffat on the bench. https://t.co/mQV7j59CSw— Kieran (@Kieran_Celtic) September 26, 2021
Juranovic back in at left-back so Ralston keeps his place. As you were apart from that… plus Moffat on the bench. Wouldn’t mind seeing him get a wee go today 👏🏽 https://t.co/dWoDnKulGe— Sean Martin (@seanmartinTCW) September 26, 2021
