CAPTAIN Callum McGregor will miss Celtic’s crunch encounter against Hearts at Tynecastle today.

The Hoops skipper was replaced by teenager Daniel Kelly at half-time in the 7-1 midweek win over Dundee at Parkhead, but hasn’t recovered in time to face Steven Naismith’s side.

McGregor’s place in midfield will be taken by Portuguese playmaker Paulo Bernardo with Matt O’Riley assuming anchorman duties.

TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Carter-Vickers, Scales, Taylor; Iwata, O’Riley, Bernardo; Yang, Idah, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Lagerbielke, Palma, Kyogo, Kuhn, Holm, Kelly, Ralston and Welsh.

Earlier today, we asked how much you could remember about recent encounters with the Edinburgh side in CQN‘s fun five-minute quiz to test your knowledge.

Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.

CAPITAL PERFORMANCE…Matt O’Riley is congratulated by Brendan Rodgers after the 4-1 win over Hearts at Tynecastle in October. (See Question 4.)



1: Brendan Rodgers has happy memories of Tynecastle. He won his first-ever Premiership game 2-1 at the venue on August 7 2016. Who scored the winning goal?

2: The Irishman claimed his first Celtic title at Hearts’ ground on April 2 2017. The Hoops triumphed 5-1 with Stuart Armstrong and Patrick Roberts on target. Who scored a hat-trick?

3: Rodgers returned to Tynecastle on October 22 last year to guide the team to a 4-1 win. Japanese international Reo Hatate hit the post with a penalty-kick, but three of his countrymen got on the scoresheet. Can you name them?

4: Who was Celtic’s other marksman that afternoon?

5: Ange Postecoglou sealed his second successive crown at the venue on May 7 last year with a 2-0 win. Kyogo Furuhashi got the opening goal, but can you remember who hit the clincher?


1: Scott Sinclair.

2: Scott Sinclair again!

3: Daizen Maeda, Kyogo Furuhashi and Tomoki Iwata.

4: Matt O’Riley.

5: Oh Hyeon-gyu.

Well done if you got five out of five. Go to the top of the class!
