Three players Celtic should rotate in to play vs. Inverness Caley Thistle
Callum McGregor came off the substitutes’ bench on Sunday with the game poised at 2-2 and just 18 minutes remaining. He was a key part of the eventual 5-2 victory, providing boundless energy and dragging the team forward as they racked up the goals against St Johnstone.
It was his sumptuous flick that provided the assist for Moussa Dembele to net his second hat-trick of the season after a most wonderful team move involving a rabona from Mikael Lustig of all people.
While he came on for Liam Henderson at the weekend, he deserves to start vs. Inverness but should do so in the place of Nir Bitton. Henderson, Brown and McGregor would be a high-intensity trio in that Celtic midfield that could really trouble the Caley team early doors and have the Hoops rushing to a lead.
The chances of an upset or a tricky replay up in Inverness increase as the game progresses so the Hoops will be hoping to start strongly and ensure it’s just another routine day at Celtic Park.
