Ange Postecoglou has named his strongest available team for today’s friendly against West Ham.

Vasilis Barkas keeps his place in goal despite his error against Midtjylland while Dane Murray gets the chance to develop his defensive partnership with Stephen Welsh.

Murray for Nir Bitton is the only change from the team that started against Midtjylland on Tuesday with fans looking forward to another sighting of Liel Abada.

Postecoglou clearly feels that his side need to get minutes in before the return leg against the Danes, with a full compliment of 11 players the 18,500 fans present will be hoping for a repeat of the first half showing against Midtjylland.

James Forrest looks likely to get his first outing of the season coming off the bench. Armstrong Oko-Flex is among the West Ham subs.

CELTIC: Barkas; Ralston, Murray, Welsh, Taylor; Soro, McGregor; Abada, Turnbull, Christie; Edouard

SUBS: Bain, Doohan, Bitton, Griffiths, Rogic, Bolingoli, Urhoghide, Connell, Shaw, Robertson, Forrest, Henderson, Montgomery, Hjelde
