Ahead of Celtic’s league clash with Hamilton, 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 extend their 14 points lead at New Douglas Park on Christmas Eve.

Celtic beat Partick Thistle in midweek, and can extend their unbeaten run to 22 games in domestic football this season.

Martin Canning’s side are currently ninth in the league table, and haven’t won since the end of October.

To understand our prediction, you also need to see the latest team news ahead of the game. Here’s our predicted team in a 4-2-3-1 formation for Saturday afternoon.
