BRENDAN RODGERS rings the changes for the final Premiership game against St Mirren at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Hoops gaffer, with an eye to the Scottish Cup showpiece against Rangers a week today, has rested a host of regulars for the visit of the Paisley club.

Anthony Ralston, Stephen Welsh and Maik Nawrocki all make rare first-team starts in the back-line while Kyogo Furuhashi returns to lead the attack with Adam Idah among an impressive cast on the substitutes’ bench.

TEAM: Hart; Ralston, Welsh, Nawrocki, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Kuhn, Kyogo, Palma. Subs: Bain, Johnston, Scales, Idah, Carter-Vickers, Iwata, Bernardo, Maeda and Forrest.

Rodgers’ men have won the previous two home contests against Stephen Robinson’s side while also enjoying a double victory in Paisley, one in the Scottish Cup.
