Tom Rogic and Odsonne Edourd are back in the Celtic side to face Aberdeen at Hampden today with Nir Bitton coming into defence.

In 2017 Rogic scored the winning goal in the Scottish Cup Final to sink Aberdeen with Edouard sinking Hearts two years later.

The injured Kris Ajer misses out with Olivier Ntcham and Albian Ajeti dropping onto the bench, Scott Bain continues in goal as Celtic go chasing the trophy for the fourth year running.

The two clubs met a week ago at Pittodrie, sharing the points, six goals and three penalties with Willie Collum in charge.

While the Dons have enjoyed a full week to prepare for Hampden Celtic were off to Lille in midweek on Europa League duty.

Kris Ajer added to Celtic’s injury woes but on the plus side Odsonne Edouard and Nir Bitton returned to action during the second half of the 2-2 draw in Lille.

Today’s winners will face Hearts in the final on December 20.

CELTIC: Bain; Frimpong, Duffy, Bitton, Laxalt; Christie, Brown, McGregor, Rogic, Elyounoussi; Edouard

SUBS: Barkas, Taylor, Griffiths, Ajeti, Klimala, Soro, Turnbull, Ntcham, Elhamed
