Celtic have announced the starting line-up that will take on St Mirren on Wednesday night in the Scottish Premiership.

The team was revealed on the club’s official Twitter account a short time ago.


The big news is that Greg Taylor makes his Celtic debut. Almost two months after joining the Hoops, the former Kilmarnock man gets his chance to show what he can do.


He replaces Boli Bolingoli, with two other changes from the side which defeated Aberdeen. Moritz Bauer replaces Jeremie Frimpong.

Whilst further forward, Ryan Christie returns to the side, replacing Tom Rogic. The rest of the team selected is as expected, as Neil Lennon selects the forward players who excelled against Aberdeen.

The team selected by Lennon has unsurprisingly generated some comment on social media. One fan said ‘finally’ when finding out that Taylor started. Meanwhile, another fan felt ‘dismay’ that Scott Sinclair was once more not in the squad. Quite a few fans were unhappy that Sinclair isn’t featuring.

Here are some of the best reactions from social media to Celtic’s starting line-up:

The Hoops go into the game on top of the Premiership table on goal difference. They currently have a three goal lead over second placed Rangers. Neil Lennon will be hoping to increase that margin by the end of the game.

Celtic will be huge favourites for the game against a St Mirren side who are struggling at the wrong end of the table. That does not mean that the Hoops will have it easy though. Neil Lennon will want plenty of commitment from his side to ensure that they stay at the top of the table.
