DAVID TURNBULL gets a rare first-team start in the Scottish Cup fourth round encounter against Morton at Parkhead this afternoon.
The classy midfielder fired in a glorious 30-yarder for the Hoops’ final goal in the 4-0 midweek win over St Mirren – and Ange Postecoglou rewarded him with a place alongside Callum McGregor and Aaron Mooy against the Championship outfit.
HIGH HOPES…Alexandro Bernabei skips over a challenge from Kilmarnock’s Danny Armstrong in Celtic’s 2-0 Viaplay Cup win at Hampden last weekend.
The Australian World Cup star is also one of the manager’s four changes – the other two being Alexandro Bernabei and Daizen Maeda.
There is still no-show from Giorgos Giakoumakis who missed the Saints match with an injury. He trained yesterday, but has still been overlooked by the manager as the trek to Hampden on June 3 kicks off in the east end of Glasgow.
TEAM: Hart; Johnston, Starfelt, Kobayashi, Bernabei; Turnbull, McGregor, Mooy; Abada, Kyogo, Maeda. Subs: Bain, Haksabanovic, Jota, Iwata, O’Riley, Hatate, Forrest, Lawal and Welsh.
Earlier today, we asked how much remembered about past connections with the Greenock club in CQN’s fun five-minute quiz. Now we repeat those questions and provide the answers.
SIGN HERE, PLEASE…Celtic boss Davie Hay watches as Mark McGhee puts pen to paper to join the Hoops. (See Question 4.)
1: Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic beat Morton 3-0 in the Scottish Cup at Parkhead in March 2018. Moussa Dembele scored two – can you remember the other goalscorer?
2: Who was the former Celtic player in charge of the Cappielow side in that match?
3: Only two of the 14 Celtic players who were utilised that afternoon almost five years ago are still with the club. Can you name them?
