Ahead of Celtic’s clash with Alloa, we at Read Celtic will role-play (not that kind) and predict the starting XI.

We will be playing the role of Brendan Rodgers, and choosing the starting XI and how the team are expected to line-up on the pitch.

It also includes a bit of insight into what we expect from each player, and what they can do to make the difference.

Celtic’s previous meeting with Alloa in 2002, saw the top division champions win 5-0.

Alloa are currently on an 11 game winning streak in all competitions after being relegated from the second tier last season.

The Hoops have won all four of their previous meetings against the League One side, and will be looking to maintain their winning start to the domestic season.

To understand our prediction you need to also see the latest team news ahead of the game. Here’s our predicted team in a 4-3-3 formation for Wednesday night.
