    Perfect game for some controlled squad rotation, especially the players that have played all internationals recently.

    Still not convinced. Cannot think of a single assist created or save pulled off yet. Worst signing ever. :87:

    Same for me, Hart and the same 2 center halfs should start every game if fit, the only 2 positions that dont cover much mileage.

    Yep, plus keeper is a position so dependent on confidence and timing. Once you're in form you never want to stop playing to keep the form going. The slightest thing can interfere with that so unless he's injured or just plain exhausted, you pick him every time.

    I would take zero chances. Stick the strongest side out and start some momentum again.

    We're at home against a mid table 2nd division side. We should be looking to get this game finished in 60 minutes. Then give some lads a rest/opportunity.

    There's still something not right at Celtic, whether its mentality or squad quality. They just need to keep playing the same system and get familiar with one another.

    Wouldn’t rotate too much for this because A) we don’t have the depth for it, and B) we need to get a fairly settled XI to put a good run of results together.

    Hart

    Juranovic Carter-Vickers Scales Boli

    McCarthy

    Rogic Turnbull

    Abada Ajeti Jota

    We’ve signed McCarthy on a four year deal and whether you like it or not, he has a part to play due to our limited options in there. We need to get him as fit as possible.

    Likewise with Boli. LB is a position that is up for grabs so I’d give him another start and see how he gets on.

    Hopefully if we are a couple of goals to the good at HT, we can bring Johnston on for Abada or Jota. Could be a good games to give minutes to Urogihde or Shaw as well.

    Praying we get a glimpse of big GG for 15-20 minutes.

    Just put the strongest team out and get the game won, then take a few players off.

    I like this team. If Juranovic is going to be first choice right back I wouldn't mind Ralston getting the cup games though, he's shown he's good enough for that at least. I'd also maybe start Montgomery over Johnstone.

    Need to get some confidence back and play with the same tempo as we've done at home so far this season.

    Hopefully that can eventually carry over into our away games too, our lack of depth is a worry when we're on 3 games a week for the next few months.
