  • Celtic starting XI to play Aberdeen in League Cup Final at Hampden

    Celtic starting XI to play Aberdeen in League Cup Final at Hampden

    By: Joe Donnelly on 02 Dec, 2018 13:45

  • BRENDAN Rodgers makes one change to the starting XI that defeated Rosenborg in Norway midweek for today’s League Cup final against Aberdeen at Hampden. A win would see the manager secure his seventh consecutive domestic trophy since joining the club in 2016.

    Scott Bain replaces Craig Gordon in goal, having started all previous games in the competition. And, as in Thursday’s vital 1-0 Europa League group-stage win, Scott Brown again starts on the bench, as does Leigh Griffiths, Cristian Gamboa, Jonny Hayes, and Olivier Ntcham. Moreover, centre-back Jozo Simunovic returns as a substitute.

    Brendan Rodgers won his first trophy at the Hoops against the same opponents in the League Cup final of 2016. Goals from Moussa Dembele, Tom Rogic and James Forrest secured the first silverware of the treble that year, and should the latter score today, he’ll become the first Celt since Bobby Lennox to score in three consecutive League Cup finals.

    Kick off at Hampden is 3pm. Keep up to date with all the pre-match build-up and live match up-dates on the official Celtic Twitter- @Celticfc.

    CELTIC: Bain, Lustig, Boyata, Benkovic, Tierney; McGregor, Christie, Rogic; Forrest, Sinclair; Edouard.
    Subs: Gordon, Simunovic, Gamboa, Hayes, Brown, Ntcham, Griffiths.
