ANTHONY RALSTON and Yuki Kobayashi start for Celtic as they stand on the brink of a second successive title against Hearts at Tynecastle this afternoon.

As expected, the Scotland international right-back and the Japanese central defender come in for crocked duo Alistair Johnston and Cameron Carter-Vickers.

It will be a landmark appearance for keeper Joe Hart who plays his 100th game for the Hoops.

TEAM: Hart; Ralston, Starfelt, Kobayashi, Taylor; O’Riley, McGregor, Hatate; Jota, Kyogo, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Haksabanovic, Abada, Mooy, Turnbull, Oh, Iwata, Bernabei, Lawal.
