As Celtic continue to stutter in this dismal Scottish Premiership campaign, Neil Lennon’s side will have no better chance of getting back to winning ways than when they take on bottom side Hamilton at home.
The Hoops are winless in their last four games in the league, and slipped to a hugely disappointing 2-2 draw against Livingston last weekend, with Scott Brown piling on his side’s misery with a red card.
Lennon may consider making some changes to breathe some new life into his team, and with that in mind, below is a look at how Celtic might line up for tonight’s clash.
Vasilis Barkas should keep his place in between the sticks, with Conor Hazard remaining on the bench. In front of him, the back-four could see some major changes, with Anthony Ralston pushing for a rare start given that Jeremie Frimpong is closing in on a move to Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen.
That could see Kristoffer Ajer move into central defence to partner Stephen Welsh, with both Nir Bitton and Shane Duffy making way for him. Greg Taylor should keep his spot at left-back, however.
In midfield, Lennon may be reluctant to change things around, so that could see Ismaila Soro continue as the side’s anchor man, with Ryan Christie, Callum McGregor and David Turnbull playing further forward.
Up front, Mohamed Elyounoussi may keep his starting spot after scoring last time out against Livingston, and he could be joined with Odsonne Edouard, with the Frenchman replacing Leigh Griffiths.
Predicted XI: Barkas; Ralston, Ajer, Welsh, Taylor; Soro, Christie, McGregor, Turnbull; Elyounoussi, Edouard.
