CELTIC boss Ange Postecoglou has made ELEVEN changes from the side that beat Dundee United 3-0 on Sunday for tonight’s final Europa League Group G match against Real Betis at Parkhead.
The Greek-Australian had hinted at ringing the changes and he has most certainly done that with former Sheffield Wednesday prospects defender Osaze Urhoghide and midfielder Liam Shaw making their debuts after their summer arrival from Hillsborough.
Liam Scales, who scored on his Premiership debut six minutes after replacing Greg Taylor at Tannadice, is rewarded with a start against the Spanish cracks who won the September clash 4-3 in Seville after the Hoops had raced into a 2-0 lead.
Nir Bitton will captain the line-up with Callum McGregor on the substitutes’ bench.
Ismaila Soro, James McCarthy and Shaw make up the midfield with Liel Abada and Albian Ajeti the main threat up front.
TEAM: Bain; Urhoghide, Welsh, Scales, Montgomery; Shaw, Bitton, McCarthy, Soro; Abada, Ajeti. Subs: Hart, Oluwayemi, Taylor, Kyogo, Turnbull, Johnston, McGregor, Murray, Henderson and Juranovic.
