    Celtic team news for Boxing Day tie against Aberdeen

    By: Tony Connelly on 26 Dec, 2018 12:44

  • RYAN Christie will front the Celtic attack at Pittodrie this afternoon as the Hoops meet Aberdeen in the penultimate league game of 2018.

    Christie returns to the starting XI less than two weeks after coming off injured in Celtic’s final game in the Europa League group stages.

    The 23-year-old made a quick recovery and will start today’s game against the side he spent 18 months on loan at.

    He is one of five changes to the side that defeated Dundee 3-0 at Paradise three days ago with Mikey Johnston starting from the bench.

    Celtic captain Scott Brown returns to the heart of midfield in place of Olivier Ntcham. Anthony Ralston and Jozo Simunovic make way for Mikael Lustig and Dedryck Boyata in defence and Craig Gordon starts in goal ahead of Scott Bain.

    Kick-off at Pittodrie is 2pm. For all the pre-match build-up and live up-dates head to the official Celtic Twitter- @CelticFC

    CELTIC: Gordon, Lustig, Boyata, Benkovic, Izaguirre; Brown, McGregor, Rogic, Forrest, Sinclair; Christie
    Subs: Bain, Ajer, Ralston, Hayes, Ntcham, Johnston Edouard
