Celtic have been handed a boost for the cup final after Kyogo Furuhashi was declared fit to lead the line against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Both clubs have named their sides for the showpiece game at Hampden Park, where Inverness are hoping for a giant-killing feat and Celtic aim to complete a domestic treble after winning the Premiership and League Cup.

Manager Ange Postecoglou and Billy Dodds both had big decisions to make as they prepared their sides for the game and are hoping to see their teams put on a strong performance in the sun at the national stadium.

Celtic had concerns about top goalscorer Kyogo after he took a knock in the final league match against Aberdeen but the Japanese forward trained on Friday and is ready for action.

Joe Hart starts in goal for Celtic, with a four-man defence of Greg Taylor, Tomoki Iwata, Carl Starfelt and Alistair Johnston.

Captain Callum McGregor, Reo Hatate and Matt O’Riley are in midfield, while Daizen Maeda and Jota flank Kyogo in attack.

For Inverness, Mark Ridgers is in goal, with Cameron Harper, Danny Devine, Robbie Deas, and Wallace Duffy in defence.

Nathan Shaw, Tom Welsh, David Carson, Scott Allardice, and Jay Henderson are in midfield, with Billy McKay playing up front.
