Ange Postecoglou has changed his entire starting XI from the team that beat Dundee United on Sunday.

Osaze Urhoghide, Liam Shaw and Liam Scales all come in to make their debut with Stephen Welsh and Nir Biton in defence the only players that started in the last Europa League tie away to Bayer Leverkusen.

The Sheffield United duo haven’t played any football since Celtic’s Colts side lost to Morton in the Challenge Cup at the start of September while Scales will be on a high after his scoring appearance off the bench against Dundee United.

Cameron Carter-Vickers is suspended while James Forrest was injured against Dundee United but the other changes are all through choice. Joe Hart, Callum McGregor, David Turnbull and Kyogo Furuhashi are on stand-by on the bench.

On Sunday Celtic host Motherwell in the SPFL with six further matches to be played before the winter break starts on January 2.

CELTIC: Bain; Urhoghide, Welsh, Biton, Scales: Soro, McCarthy, Shaw; Abada, Ajeti, Montgomery

SUBS: Hart, Oluwayemi, Taylor, Kyogo, Turnbull, Johnston, McGregor, Murray, Henderson, Juranovic
