So the big guy Barkas plays in goal today, and Greg Taylor, who the manager said was touch and go, will play from the start. Good stuff on both counts.
Celtic’s team for the game against Kilmarnock this afternoon has been named and we’ve gone with one up front and apart from the keeper it’s the same starting line-up who won last weekend. The bench remains strong with the likes of Soro, Ntcham, Klimala, Bitton and Abd Elhamed on there.
There is no place for Tom Rogic.
More on him tomorrow.
Two of the subs are academy players; Robertson and Dembele.
Overall, we’re looking sharp here, and very capable. Griffiths is out, apparently through injury, but the rest of the first team squad looks pretty solid.
You can see, just looking at the subs, those areas where we still need a bit of cover though; wide right and central defence.
Of course, we’re also looking at bringing in another striker.
If we can get those footballer signed then I’d say our business for the window will be just about done, and I’ll be pretty confident.
This is a big afternoon for us, so enjoy it and I’ll see you all on the other side.
Team: Barkas, Jullien, Taylor, Brown, Christie, Edouard, Elyounoussi, Frimpong, Ajer, McGregor, Forrest.
Subs: Scott Bain, Nir Bitton, Patryk Klimala. Ismaila Soro, Olivier Ntcham, Boli Bolingoli, Scott Robertson, Hatem Abd Elhamed and Karamoko Dembele.
