Brendan Rodgers has indicated signalled that the Celtic will shake things up for Sunday’s clash against Kilmarnock.

Changes look set to be made to the Hoops side following the 2-0 defeat to Valencia.

“We’ll look at how everyone is, but we’ll make a few changes just to re-energise the team” he told the Herald. “We’ll re-focus and get back to how we usually play.”

Striker set to start?

As for the changes to the side, Odsonne Edouard would have to be a candidate to start for the Hoops. He hasn’t started a game since December but has looked good in his last few substitute appearances.

It would be a boost for the Bhoys if Kieran Tierney returned to the line-up after two months out. Perhaps the only question mark surrounding his inclusion is Kilmarnock’s plastic pitch.

If that’s the case Jonny Hayes can replace Emilio Izaguirre, who struggled badly against Valencia.

Attacker can create havoc

Timothy Weah shone in the recent 2-0 win over St Johnstone. His attacking intent will be welcome in a game which is a must-win for the Hoops, perhaps in place of Oliver Burke.

Celtic were noticeably lifeless in the passive defeat to Valencia.  A complete change from the vibrant football displayed in the fixtures before the Europa League clash.


A few changes to the side could get the Hoops back on track.
