Ange Postecoglou makes three changes to the Celtic side, all in defence, from the side that lost to Livingsyon for tonight’s Premier Sports Cup tie at home to Raith Rovers.
Cameron Carter Vickers is the only survivor with Tony Ralston, Carl Starfelt and Adam Montgomery joining the on-loan Spurs man at the back.
The midfielders and forwards are given a vote of confidence with Giorgos Giakoumakis listed as a substitute for the first time since his transfer from VVV Venlo.
Celtic went out of the tournament at this stage last year to Ross County as Neil Lennon’s side went into meltdown, on the back of six successive home wins this seasons a repeat isn’t something to be considered or tolerated.
Tonight’s winners will go into the semi-final draw which will be made after tonight’s match, next up for the hoops is the visit of Dundee United on Sunday in the SPFL.
CELTIC: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Montgomery; Rogic, McCarthy, Turnbull; Abada, Ajeti, Jota
SUBS: Bain, Scales, Bitton, Giakoumakis, Soro, Bolingoli, Urhoghide, Welsh, Jaranovic
