Kyogo Furuhashi is fit to start for Celtic against Hibernian in the Premier Sports Cup final.

The Japanese forward, who has scored 14 goals already this season, has missed recent games with injury and manager Ange Postecoglou had said it was a “day-today” assessment of his fitness in the run-up to the final.

Mikey Johnston also returns for Celtic and Postecoglou has named an attacking side as boith sides go for the first silverware of the season.

For Hibs, interim manager David Gray has brought Jamie Murphy into the team to start, replacing injured Chris Cadden, and Kevin Nisbet is fit after doubts earlier in the week about his availability.

Celtic start with Joe Hart in goal, and a back four of Greg Taylor, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Carl Starfelt and Josip Juranovic.

Callum McGregor, Tom Rogic and David Turnbull are in the midfield, with Mikey Johnston and Liel Abada either side of Kyogo Furuhashi in attack.

The Celtic substitutes are Scott Bain, Liam Scales, Nir Bitton, James McCarthy, Liam Shaw, Adam Montgomery, Anthony Ralston, Stephen Welsh and Owen Moffat.

Hibs have Matt Macey in goal behind Lewis Stevenson, Paul Hanlon, Ryan Porteous and Paul McGinn.

Jake Doyle-Hayes, Joe Newell and Josh Campbell are in midfield, with Martin Boyle and Jamie Murphy the wide men supporting striker Kevin Nisbet.

The Hibs substitutes are Kevin Dabrowski, Josh Doig, Drey Wright, Christian Doidge, Alex Gogic, Scott Allan, Darren McGregor, James Scott and Chris Cadden.
