BRENDAN RODGERS has handed starting places to new Bhoys Nicolas Kuhn and Adam Idah for tonight’s Premieship encounter with Hibs at Easter Road.

Stephen Welsh also gets the nod to face the Edinburgh club while Kyogo Furuhashi, Liel Abada and Maik Nawrocki drop to the substitutes’ bench from the team that kicked off in the 1-1 draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday.

Japanese speedster Daizen Maeda also goes straight into the line-up in place of Luis Palma after returning from the Asian Cup.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Welsh, Scales, Bernabei; Bernardo, McGregor, O’Riley; Kuhn, Idah, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Palma, Kygo, Abada, Holm, Nawrocki, Vata, Kelly and Ralston.

Earlier today, we asked you how much you could remember about past connections with the Edinburgh side in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz to test your knowledge.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.

PICK IT OUT…Moussa Dembele nets one of his double in the 4-2 League Cup semi-final triumph over Hibs in season 2017/18 as he fires a shot past the helpless Ross Laidlaw. (See Question 1.)


1: Brendan Rodgers faced Neil Lennon’s Hibs in the League Cup semi-final in October 21 2017. Can you remember the result?

2: Who were the Celtic goalscorers that afternoon?

3: Two Celtic players who faced Hibs in the scoreless stalemate at Easter Road in October left the club last month. Can you name them?

4: The champions won 4-1 when the teams played in December at Parkhead. Matt O’Riley and Luis Palma scored that evening – who claimed a double?

5: Who was the Edinburgh club’s manager at the time?


1: Celtic beat Hibs 4-2.
