NEW Bhoy Sead Haksabanovic will make a surprise start for Celtic in the Champions League Group F encounter against Shakhtar Donetsk in Warsaw this evening.

The Montenegro international winger, who joined in a £1.7million switch from Rubin Kazan last month, has made two substitute appearances against Ross County and Real Madrid since his arrival.

HERE WE KYOGO AGAIN…Celtic hitman Kyogo Furuhashi will be aiming for Shakhtar Donetsk tonight.

Ange Postecoglou has promoted the frontman, who has been impressive in his restricted outings, to the top side with Liel Abada dropping to the substitutes’ bench. Daizen Maeda is also among the stand-by squad.

Haksabanovic is one of only two changes from the line-up that lost 3-0 to the European champions last week. Kyogo Furuhashi, who also figured off the bench against the Spaniards, will lead the line in place of Giorgos Giakoumakis.

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