ALISTAIR JOHNSTON returns to the Celtic line-up for Flag Day against Aberdeen at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Canadian World Cup right-back has missed the last four games after ending up in plaster following the 1-0 semi-final win over Michael Beale’s Ibrox side last month. Anthony Ralston took over the No.2 role.

However, Ange Postecoglou has given Johnston the nod to start against the Dons with an eye to the Scottish Cup Final against Inverness Caley Thistle at Hampden only a week away.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Starfelt, Iwata, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Abada, Kyogo, Jota. Subs: Siegrist, Turnbull, Oh, Bernabei, Forrest, Summers, Ralston, Welsh and Vata.

Earlier today, we asked how much you could remember of past connections involving the Pittodrie outfit in CQN’s fun five-minute quiz.

Now we repeat the questions and provide the answers.

FANS’ FAVOURITE…Reo Hatate is on the ball. (See Question 4.)


1: Who scored Celtic’s first Premiership goal of the season against Aberdeen in the 2-0 win at Parkhead on July 31?

2: Billy McNeill spent just one season as manager of the Dons before taking over from Jock Stein at Celtic in the summer of 1978. True or false?

3: Celtic won at Pittodrie on December 17 after the World Cup Finals break. Who scored the game’s only goal?

4: Which Hoops favourite claimed a double when the champions won 4-0 against the Pittodrie club in Glasgow on February 18?
