Ahead of Celtic’s league clash with Hamilton Academical, 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, as well as 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.
Rodgers’ side are still unbeaten in domestic football this season and will look to maintain that against Hamilton at Paradise in midweek.
Last time out in the league, The Hoops won comfortably 4-1 against Partick Thistle, and will face Martin Canning’s side who are currently eighth in the table.
Hamilton haven’t won since October and have drawn their last five games, conceding eight in their last trip to Paradise.
Could do little about the goal the conceded and will retain his place in the team.
Decent performance at the weekend and will soon sign a new deal at the club due to his impressive performances this season.
Rested at the weekend and should return to the team in midweek.
Another solid performance at the weekend and should keep his place in the team.
Scored in two consecutive league games and should be given a start against Hamilton.
Will lead the team out the tunnel once again and will look to control the midfield once again.
Should be given a rare start to give others a rest and allow him to get some more first-team minutes under his belt.
Two goals at the weekend and is growing into Celtic midfield, becoming an important player.
Didn’t hve the best of games at the weekend but due to a number of injuries he will have a chance to impress in front of the home crowd.
Scored one and assisted two and should start once again as Dembele hasn’t scored fro open play in seven starts.
Poor performance at the weekend but will only get better with more game time after an eight month layoff with an ankle injury that required surgery.
