BRENDAN RODGERS has pitched Odin Holm into his starting line-up against Aberdeen in today’s 2.30pm kick-off at Parkhead.

Yang Hyun-jun comes in for the injured Daizen Maeda.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; Holm, McGregor, O’Riley; Yang, Kyogo, Palma. Subs: Bain, Ralston, Phillips, Turnbull, Oh, Bernabei, Iwata, Bernardo and Forrest.
