Hyeongyu Oh has been named in the Celtic starting line-up for the first time as they host Aberdeen in Glasgow.

Japan forward Kyogo Furuhashi, who was taken off injured in last week’s Scottish Cup win against St Mirren, drops to the bench.

Oh came on for the top scorer and found the net soon after for his first goal as Celtic ran out 5-1 winners.

He has now been rewarded with his first start since joining in January.

The Hoops go into the game nine points clear at the top of the Premiership and unbeaten domestically in five months.

They start with Joe Hart in goals behind Alistair Johnston, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Starfelt and Taylor with a midfield of Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley supporting the front three of Jota, Oh and Daizen Maeda.

Aberdeen on the other hand are seventh in the table and fighting for a place in the top six after a poor run under Jim Goodwin that ultimately lead to his sacking.

They did however record their first win in six games when they defeated Motherwell 3-1 under caretaker manager Barry Robson.

The former Celtic player returns to the east end of Glasgow in the opposing dugout with a record of one defeat and one win from his first two games.

A result at the home of the champions could go a long way in his bid to get the job full time.

He starts with Gorter in goals behind Mackenzie, Pollock, Macdonald, Shinnie, Kennedy, Ramadani, Clarkson, Hayes, Miovski and Duk.
