CAMERON CARTER-VICKERS takes his place in Celtic’s central defence against Hearts at Parkhead this afternoon after missing the last two games.

A tight hamstring ruled the USA World Cup star out of the line-up for the matches against Kilmarnock and Feyenoord, but he returns alongside Liam Scales for the visit of the Tynecastle outfit.

Stephen Welsh, who made his comeback against the Dutch outfit after a four-month absence, drops to the substitutes’ bench, but there is no place for Champions League goal hero Gustaf Lagerbielke in Brendan Rodgers’ matchday squad.

TEAM: Hart; A Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; Turnbull, McGregor, O’Riley; M Johnston, Kyogo, Palma. Subs: Bain, Oh, Kwon, Bernabei, Bernardo, Maeda, Forrest, Ralston and Welsh.

Earlier today, we asked how much you could remember about past associations with Hearts in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz.
