Celtic must be looking to bounce back after an incredibly disappointing midweek performance that saw them crash out of the UEFA Europa Conference League at the hands of Bodo/Glimt. The Norwegian champions were the convincing victors, winning both legs and having a 5-1 aggregate win. This must be a big blow for Ange Postecoglou’s side but one has to feel that their focus is pretty much back on the Premiership already by now.
Celtic currently sit three points clear at the top of the league table although it is pretty clear how quickly things can change in football.
Just a month or so back, the Rangers held a 6-point lead over Celtic but it has not taken long for that to be overturned. Thus, the Hoops must remained fully focused heading into the final 11 league games of the season.
With a spot in next season’s Champions League group stage up for grabs, it is safe to say that Celtic cannot afford to let this opportunity slip, which makes the upcoming game against Hibernian even more important. Shaun Maloney’s side cannot overlooked though. They have improved since the change in the managerial hot seat and have climbed up to fourth in the table.
Celtic Predicted XI vs Hibernian: Key changes
Here’s how we think Ange Postecoglou could line Celtic up, when they travel to Easter Road to take on Hibernian in the Premiership:
There is very little doubt about who will be starting in goal for Celtic. The Englishman has been the reliable pick since he joined the club in the summer from Tottenham Hotspur.
Hart has proven that he is still a top goalkeeper since then and has established himself as a leader of this team as well. Thus, expect him to be starting in goal for Celtic for the foreseeable future.
