Domestic football returns after a sluggish international break (in Scotland’s case), with Celtic set to host Glasgow rivals Rangers in Sunday’s derby.
The Hoops remain 10 points clear at the top of the Premiership table and have an eighth consecutive league title within their sights.
They will also be out for revenge given the previous clash between the sides ended in a 1-0 home win for Rangers back in December.
The win at Ibrox was the first time Rangers had beaten the Hoops in 12 previous attempts in all competitions.
The last time the teams met at Celtic Park, the champions prevailed; Olivier Ntcham bagged the only goal of the game in the second half.
It is set to be a tough affair, with Celtic being gifted the opportunity to go 13 points clear in what would all but seal another league title.
Here is our Celtic predicted XI for Sunday’s 12.00 kick-off.
GK: Scott Bain
Remains number one and rightfully so.
RB: Jeremy Toljan
Seemingly a toss-up between him and Lustig. The Swede was benched for his country’s draw with Norway recently. Toljan would provide more enthusiasm in attack – but his defending has been suspect.
CB: Dedryck Boyata
Withdrew from the Belgium squad for ‘personal reasons’, but there has been no reports to suggest he is out injured.
CB: Kristoffer Ajer
Ajer has developed a real knowledge in defence and looks set to be a star going forward.
LB: Kieran Tierney
Didn’t feature for Scotland at all, leaving people to wonder how match fit he is. It could come down to who is chosen on the day; whether it be Tierney or Jonny Hayes.
CM: Scott Brown
It’s vital that the captain leads by example and puts in a performance completely opposite of the one at Ibrox three months ago.
CM: Callum McGregor
Has arguably been the club’s Player of the Season and for good reason. With Tom Rogic out, McGregor’s big game swagger could make an appearance.
RW: Oliver Burke
His pace could prove useful out wide, and also create space for the other forwards in the middle.
CAM: James Forrest
Not his usual position, but one he can excel in. Linking-up with Burke and running at the defence might just be a good tactic to adopt.
LW: Scott Sinclair
Sinclair is likely to start out on the left as he has so frequently.
ST: Odsonne Edouard
Since Lennon’s arrival, the Frenchman has so far lived up to his name as a big game player. Last gasp winners against Hearts and Dundee have proved vital to Celtic’s league campaign. This is his game.
