Celtic have been in a rampaging mood for the entirety of the Scottish Premiership this season and under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers, it appears the Bhoys will clinch the league silverware by a landslide. Their latest 2-0 win over Motherwell has ensured that they possess a humungous lead of 24 points over second-placed Aberdeen on the charts and with 73 points from 25 outings, the remaining fixtures are mere formalities to meet.
The Celts host 11th-placed Hamilton Academical on 25th of February at the Celtic Park in what promises to be yet another one-sided affair in favour of Celtic. Hamilton Academical are just a couple of points above Inverness CT who are the last-place outfit and would enter the game as the underdogs. Nonetheless, here is Celtic’s predicted line-up for the clash.
Craig Gordon has been a pretty resilient performer this season with the gloves, accumulating as many as 15 clean sheets from 22 appearances in the league to cement his position between the sticks. His resounding display at the Celtic Park last week implies that he is yet again going to get a nod for the goalkeeping slot.
Lying ahead of Gordon should be the four-man defensive wall comprising of Kieran Tierney, Erik Sviatchenko, Dedryck Boyata and Mikael Lustig. Tierney has literally destroyed the career of veteran left-back Emilio Izaguirre and would once again be stationed on the left, with Lustig on the right. The ever reliable central defensive pairing of Sviatchenko and Boyata is likely to start yet again.
Tom Rogic is still unavailable to be used in Celtic’s midfield owing to his injury, and Rodgers is thus likely to manoeuvre Scott Sinclair and James Forrest on the left and right wings, respectively, with Liam Henderson in the no. 10 role behind the striker. To cater to the needs of cushioning the backline, we expect Nir Brown and Scott Britton to start the proceedings from the central midfield region on Saturday.
Leigh Griffiths has a training deficit and isn’t likely to be pushed into a game straight away. He wasn’t even on the bench against Motherwell, implying that the sensational striker in the form of Moussa Dembele to inject firepower into the North Lancashire based outfit. Dembele has bagged 13 goals and 5 assists already this term and would look forward to a strong finish in the Scottish top tier, and aim to increase his goal tally.
