CALLUM McGREGOR starts again on the substitutes’ bench for the crucial encounter against St Mirren at Parkhead this afternoon.

The Celtic captain played for just over 30 minutes in the 3-3 draw at Ibrox last weekend in his first appearance after missing four games.

Tomoki Iwata is in the holding role once more alongside Matt O’Riley and Reo Hatate in the middle of the park.

Maik Nawrocki comes in for the injured Liam Scales to partner Cameron Carter-Vickers in the heart of the  rearguard.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Nawrocki, Taylor; Iwata, O’Riley, Hatate; Kuhn, Kyogo, Yang. Subs: Bain, Lagerbielke, Palma, Idah, Bernardo, McGregor, Forrest, Ralston and Welsh.

Earlier today, we asked how much you could remember about past connections with the Paisley side in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.
