Last time Celtic were at Easter Road was a bit of a horror show. Daizen Maeda was sent off, while Scott Bain failed to make the most of a rare start in goal as the hosts scored four. The game meant nothing as the title was already won and Celtic were preparing for the Scottish Cup Final, but the scoreline should sting the players into a response tomorrow.
After a brutal elimination from the Europa Conference League against Aston Villa, Hibs went on a six-game unbeaten run, culminating in a draw at Tynecastle after being two goals down. That form hit the skids at Ibrox last week, where they lost four without reply.
Adrenaline is still pumping from Wednesday night and legs will still be restoring energy levels after being depleted well before the end of the Atletico game. Players are not machines, they cannot switch it on just because they want to. Brendan Rodgers abilities will be called on today and before kick-off to make sure the performance is high enough.
I would like to see Tomoki Iwata, Gustaf Lagerbielke and Oh start. Oh scored in that horror show in May; it would be a good place for him to pick up from and look to open his account for the season.
