Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has named his side for the Champions League match against Feyenoord with Kyogo Furuhashi back in the side.

The Japanese striker has been on the bench for the last two Premiership games as Oh Hyeon-gyu started in attack.

Rodgers has now handed Kyogo the chance to turn around his goalscoring form after the striker only found the net once in his last ten games.

Celtic’s exit from European competition has already been sealed but prize money, coefficient points and pride are all at stake in the match against Feyenoord.

Rodgers has been forced to pick a side without defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, who will return at the weekend, with the match at Celtic Park also coming too soon for Daizen Maeda. Reo Hatate is out until the new year.

Joe Hart starts in goal against the Dutch champions, with Greg Taylor, Liam Shaw, Stephen Welsh and Alistair Johnston in the back four.

Tomoki Iwata and Matt O’Riley form a midfield trio with captain Callum McGregor, while Mikey Johnstone and Luis Palma play either side of Kyogo in attack.
