CONFIRMED: HOOPS KID IN EURO DEBUT

0

CELTIC kid Scott Robertson will make his debut against Cluj in Romania tonight as the Hoops complete their their successful Europa League Group E campaign.

The 18-year-old midfielder is one of NINE changes to Neil Lennon’s starting line-up from the one that lifted the Betfred League Cup at Hampden on Sunday.

Matchwinner Christopher Jullien will partner Nir Bitton in central defence with Leigh Griffiths leading the attack for his first start since August.

This is the Hoops’ second visit to Romania this season, having played Cluj back in August in a Champions League qualifier which ended in a 1-1 draw with James Forrest cancelling out Mario Rondon’s opener.

With Scott Brown suspended for tonight’s match, Olivier Ntcham will captain the team and Craig Gordon takes over from Hampden hero Fraser Forster in goal while there is place in attack for Scott Sinclair.

TEAM: Gordon; Bauer, Bitton, Jullien, Bolingoli; Ntcham, Robertson, Morgan; Johnston, Griffiths, Sinclair. Subs: Hazard, Taylor, Bayo, Ajer, Forrest, Savoury, Dembele.
