    This could be fun and games. I think we can allowe Ajer to miss it which we should as our next League game is Kilmarnock away where we will want him.

    Lustig and Christie possibly not fit either. Edouard probably out even if it's nothing major will probably be badly bruised and swollen.

    Might need to play something like

    Bain
    Toljan Simunovic Bitton Izaguirre
    Brown McGregor
    Johnston Weah Sinclair
    Burke ​

    Even if Christie is fit he needs to rest for this game, hibs are utter dung and have lost Ambrose, Porteous and of course, Lennon since the last time we faced them. We should win this by at least 2 goals, but i imagine they'll score. Could potentially play Johnston instead of Henderson but i think rodgers will give henderson the nod.

    Izzy could do with a rest he came in out of nowhere and now starts every game although hes fit and doesnt seem to tire but I could see the point in leaving him out the odd game.

    Only thing is Sinclair will probably have to play and Izaguirre is actually a really good playmaker for us down the left he makes weird runs, he always beats people and gets around the box - teams can't really deal with him and Hayes doesn't have the same style hes more just kick run and cross.

    If we play Hayes and Sinclair we risk having no threat down the left or possibly even the right if Forrest is also out as Burke might not be too good on the right.

    Was decent going forward mate and made an * of Swanson a couple of time's sticking it through his legs but we were so open defensively at time's and for me he cannot defend. Too slow to get back..

    Toljan and Hayes give is far more solidity with their pace against a Hibs side who always target Lustig and exposed Izzy away and will target him again with their pace..

    I actually think we'll spank these by the way, comfortably..

    Izzy will be fine at home, he’s just a worry away from home with all the silly fouls.

    I'd really like to see Bitton on form again, his passing ability is excellent.

    Far from ideal having to go with Bitton or * forbid Hendry at CB for this. Kambieri is arguably the best striker in the league outwith ourselves and has gave us problems in the past. I'm glad they've binned Lennon as he always set them up well against us.

    Toljan Bitton Jozo Izzy
    Broony McGregor

    Plenty pace in that team to cause them problems at the back. For all of Efe's faults he had pace to match our attackers. Now they're left with McGregor, Hanlon and Milligan we should over the top of them if they give us time and space.

    Bitton for me is pretty similar to Ajer, I thought he was coming onto a game at CB before he got injured. He's not as strong as Ajer but he is better in the air than him and his passing is a bit better too although Ajer's is also good.

    He doesn't really look ready though I think he's a bit skinny looking since he came back but i'd play him before Hendry who will have no confidence at all having been binned from even the bench.

    At home, Izzy and Bitton should do fine. Weah is a class impact sub bit no way he doesn't start. Looks like Burke will be needed on the right for the first time. Hibs look * as well. 3-0, Weah, McGregor, Sinclair

    Need to see how many are injured from today.

    Forrest and Eddie will surely both miss it but I have hope for Christie.

    I was at Easter road yesterday (Long story) and they played 5 at the back with 2 wing backs. Everything they did going forward was via kamberi. He's one strong *. Their defence is absolutely there for the taking and their midfield is nothing special

    Impossible to pick a side for this until Wednesday morning TBH and Rodgers has assessed and told us who’s * and who’s available.

    Today was a huge 3 points in the context of everything that went on in the game, this would be just as big given the injuries etc...

    Have to say I’m glad it’s at home, away at Easter Rd and we would have be majorly up against it with less than half a team.
