SOUTH KOREAN winger Yang Hyun-jun has been brought into the Celtic line-up for this afternoon’s Premiership clash with Motherwell at Fir Park.
The summer recruit replaces James Forrest, who made a rare start in the 3-0 win over Livingston in West Lothian a week ago today.
The evergreen forward was sacrificed before the half-hour mark as Scott Bain came on for the red-carded Joe Hart and the former Scotland international No.1 is in at the kick-off against the Lanarkshire club.
Benji Siegrist is back-up keeper on the substitutes’ bench alongside Forrest and Liverpool loanee Nat Phillips.
TEAM: Bain; Johnston, Lagerbielke, Scales, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Yang, Kyogo, Maeda. Subs: Siegrist, Phillips, Palma, Turnbull, Holm, Oh, Iwata, Forrest, Ralston.

Earlier today, we asked you how much you could remember about recent encounters with the Stuart Kettlewell’s club in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.

DIDN’T HE DO WELL…Tom Rogic races away after his last-gasp winner against Motherwell at Fir Park on December 3 2016 in a 4-3 thriller. Patrick Roberts, who also scored, is about to join the celebrations. (See Question 1.)
