GIORGOS GIAKOUMAKIS will lead the Celtic attack against Hbs at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Greek striker is in at the kick-off while Kyogo Furuhashi starts on the substitutes’ bench alongside fellow-Japan international Daizen Maeda.

Ange Postecoglou has made another three changes from the side that lost the Champions League Group F encounter against RB Leipzig in midweek with Anthony Ralston, Aaron Mooy and James Forrest coming in while Josip Juranovic, Greg Taylor and Liel Abada are among the stand-by squad.

PARADISE…Alexandro Bernabei is in at the start against Hibs.

The Israeli raider was taken off in the first-half against the Bundesliga club with a knee injury, but has recovered to get a place in the match day squad.

There is also a first appearance on the bench this season for Yosuke Ideguchi.

A win over the Easter Road outfit will give the champions a five-point advantage at the Premiership pinnacle with their nearest challengers playing at noon tomorrow against Motherwell at Fir Park.

TEAM: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Jenz, Bernabei; Mooy, O’Riley, Hatate; Forrest, Giakoumakis, Haksabanovic. Subs: Siegrist, Taylor, Kyogo, Abada, McCarthy, Ideguchi, Abildgaard, Maeda, Juranovic.
