Brendan Rodgers and Nick Montgomery have named their starting line-ups for Wednesday night’s Premiership clash at Celtic Park.

Hibs travel to Glasgow as the form team on the back of three consecutive wins and undefeated in their last six league games.

Celtic remain eight points clear at the top following their 3-1 come-back victory over St Johnstone at the weekend.

The undefeated league leaders will be looking to get off to a better start than they did at McDiarmid Park with the manager saying their first-half performance in Perth made him angrier than he’s been in his career.

And they will know they’ll be in for another tough game against Hibs with the last meeting between the pair ending in a draw.

Three players who made a difference after coming off the bench against St Johnstone and have been rewarded with a starting place this time.

Rodgers has started Tomoki Iwata, Mikey Johnstone and Hyeongyu Oh who come in for Yang, David Turnbull and Kyogo Furuhashi.

Celtic start with Joe Hart in goals behind a back four of Alistair Johnston, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Liam Scaled and Greg Taylor.

Oh leads an attacking trio with Luis Palma and Johnstone at either side of the South Korea international.

Montgomery has made two changes to his side from their win at the weekend with Elie Youan and Lewis Miller coming in for Rory Whittaker and Dylan Vente.

Former Celtic goalkeeper David Marshall starts between the stick for Hibs following his man of the match performance in the victory over Aberdeen on Sunday.

Miller, Will Fish, Rocky Bushiri and Lewis Stevenson make up the visitor’s defensive line with a midfield of Josh Campbell, Dylan Levitt, Joe Newell and Jai Tavares hoping to supply the ammunition for Martin Boyle, who is making his 300th appearance for the club, and Youan in attack.

Celtic will be hoping they can at least keep their eight point advantage over Rangers who play Hearts at Tynecastle.

Meanwhile a victory for Hibs at Parkhead could potentially see them leapfrog their city rivals into third depending on Wednesday night’s other results.

The game at Celtic Park kicks-off at 7.45pm.
