  • Scott Bain makes Celtic bow at Ibrox

    Scott Bain makes Celtic bow at Ibrox

    By: Mark Henderson on 11 Mar, 2018 10:45

  • SCOTT Bain will make his Celtic debut in today’s Glasgow derby at Ibrox as the Hoops target a win that would extend their lead at the top of the table to nine points.

    The inclusion of the goalkeeper is one of three changes to the team that cruised past Morton last weekend to seal a spot in the Scottish Cup semi-finals.

    Dedryck Boyata makes a welcome return from injury, having been sidelined for over a month, while Callum McGregor, who found the net twice against Rangers last season, also comes into the starting XI.

    Dorus de Vries misses out through injury, and Scott Sinclair and Marvin Compper also drop out of the side.

    A further boost for the Bhoys is the inclusion of Stuart Armstrong among the substitutes after his long injury lay-off.  

    Kick-off at Ibrox is 12 noon, and head to @celticfc for all the pre-game build-up and live match updates as Brendan Rodgers’ side aim to cement their position at the league summit.

    CELTIC (4-2-3-1) Bain; Ajer, Simunovic, Boyata, Tierney; Ntcham, Brown; Forrest, Rogic, McGregor; Dembele
    Subs: Doohan, Hendry, Roberts, Sinclair, Armstrong, Edouard, Musonda
