ANGE POSTECOGLOU has made three changes to today’s starting line-up from the team that beat Livingston 2-1 in midweek.

The Celtic boss has dropped Filipe Jota and Liel Abada to the substitutes’ bench for the visit of St Johnstone and reinstated Daizen Maeda and James Forrest.

Anthony Ralston is out after his injury against Livi and Aaron Mooy has come back into the midfield in what looks like an intriguing formation.

TEAM: Hart; Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Taylor; Forrest, McGregor, Mooy, O’Riley, Hatate; Maeda, Kyogo. Subs: Siegrist, Jenz, Giakoumakis, Haksabanovic, Abada, Turnbull, Jota, Bernabei and Lawal.

HAMPDEN HERO…James Forrest celebrates a strike with Callum McGregor about to congratulate the evergreen winger. (See question one.)

Earlier today, we asked how much can you remember about past connections involving the Perth outfit in CQN’s fun five-minute quiz to test your knowledge.


1: Celtic beat St Johnstone, then the trophy holders, 1-0 in the League Cup semi-final last season. Can you name the goalscorer?

2: The Hoops also beat the Perth club in the 1969 League Cup Final. Can you remember the legendary Celtic matchwinner?

3: Giorgos Giakoumakis scored the stoppage-time points-clincher at McDiarmid Park in the 2-1 win in October. Who scored Celtic’s other goal?

4: Celtic have a player currently on loan at St Johnstone. Can you name him?

5: Celtic’s biggest league win of last season was the 7-0 romp against Callum Davidson’s side at Parkhead on April 9. Relax, we are not going to ask you to name all the goalscorers! One Celt claimed a double that afternoon. Can you identify the player?
