Odsonne Edouard returns to the Celtic side for the first time in four matches with Ryan Christie missing from the squad to face Hearts today in the Premier Sports Cup.

The return of the French striker could see Kyogo Furuhashi pushed onto the wing or the rare sight of a two man Celtic strike force.

James McCarthy is named as a substitute following his move from Crystal Palace while Leigh Griffiths surfaces for the first time since being booed by a large number of fans during the friendly against West Ham.

Hearts followed up their win over the hoops with another victory, last week away to St Mirren and go into today’s match on the back of six domestic victories.

Bobby Madden had a poor match when the sides met at Tynecastle, John Beaton is in charge today. Next up for Celtic is the visit of AK Alkmaar on Wednesday followed by St Mirren at home on Saturday.

CELTIC: Hart; Ralston, Welsh, Starfelt, Taylor; Turnbull, McGregor, Rogic; Forrest, Furuhashi, Edouard

SUBS: Bain, Ajeti, Soro, Bitton, Griffiths, Shaw, McCarthy, Urhoghide, Montgomery

HEARTS: Gordon, M. Smith, Kingsley, Souttar, Haring, Baningime, Boyce, Mackay-Steven, Halliday, Cochrane, Halkett.

Subs: Stewart, Walker, McEneff, Henderson, C. Smith, Ginnelly, Denholm
