BRENDAN RODGERS recalls Anthony Ralston to his starting eleven against Motherwell at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Scotland international takes over at right-back from Alistair Johnston who only returned to training yesterday after his return from duty with Canada.

Norwegian Odin Holm again gets the nod ahead of David Turnbull and Paulo Bernardo to play alongside skipper Callum McGregor and Matt O’Riley in midfield.

Kyogo Furuhashi leads the attack after recovering from the head injury sustained in the 6-0 win over Aberdeen in the previous game before the international break.

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