Predicted Celtic Line-up To Face Aberdeen In Scottish Premiership
Celtic welcome Aberdeen to Celtic Park on the final day of the Scottish Premiership season on Sunday.
Celtic have already been crowned as champions but manager Brendan Rodgers will want his side to bow out in style on trophy day ahead of the Scottish Cup final against Motherwell.
On the other hand, Derek McInnes’ Aberdeen are aiming to finish 2nd for the 4th straight season. To finish as runners-up, Aberdeen will go all out for a win at Celtic Park. They cannot suffer a poor result than Rangers who face Hibernian at Easter Road.
Probable Celtic XI
Manager: Brendan Rodgers
Scott Bain (GK)
Bain has proven to be quite solid between the sticks for Celtic and is expected to continue in his role on Sunday.
Jack Hendry (RB)
The January signing from Dundee FC is yet to find his feet and his development is not helped by getting stuck at right-back.
Jozo Simunovic (CB)
Simunovic has had an inconsistent season, troubled with poor form. However, the Bosnian should start on Sunday and he will be hoping to end the season on a high.
Kristoffer Ajer (CB)
Ajer has been brilliant this campaign for the Bhoys. Sharp, intelligent, ice-cool and composed, the Norwegian has established himself as a mainstay in Celtic’s back-line.
Kieran Tierney (LB)
Considered as the best left-back in his nation, Tierney has stepped up his game this season, with plenty of goals and assists. A definite starter at the weekend against Aberdeen.
Scott Brown (CM)
The club captain has had a fantastic season for the Hoops and will be hoping to continue his good form on Sunday. Strong and robust, the Scotsman’s presence in the midfield has been vital for Celtic.
Olivier Ntcham (CM)
The Frenchman has enjoyed a decent debut season with the Glasgow outfit. He offers the drive and dynamism which helps Celtic tick in the attack.
Callum McGregor (LW)
Starting on the left should be Callum McGregor, who will look to provide the creativity and impetus to Celtic’s attack. His overall involvement and work-ethic have seen him grow into a key player for the Bhoys over the past couple of seasons.
Scott Sinclair (RW)
After a bright start, Sinclair has faded off in the second-half of the season. Despite failing to light up last weekend, the former Manchester City ace should be given another shot to impress.
Tom Rogic (CAM)
The Australian has been a star performer for Celtic this season. The attacking flair and creativity he brings to the table make him such an important player for Rodgers. He will be looking to end the season on a high.
Patrick Roberts (ST)
Leading Celtic’s attack on Sunday should be Patrick Roberts. He hasn’t been able to live up to the billing like last season but will be determined to make a mark in the final league game of the season.
