Postecoglou says he's now choosing from a more settled squad.

Ange Postecoglou has made one change to his Celtic team for the visit of Ferencvaros for their Europa League group stage match.

Ten of the starting XI that beat Motherwell 2-0 on Saturday have retained their place, with Adam Montgomery replacing Boli Bolingoli at left-back in the only change.

Bolingoli has not been registered for European competition, while Josip Juranovic remains injured.

Joe Hart is in goal, while Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt continue their partnership in the centre of defence. Anthony Ralston and Adam Montgomery take the full-back roles.

Captain Callum McGregor is alongside Tom Rogic and David Turnbull in midfield, with Postecoglou fielding his first choice attack of Jota, Lial Abada and Kyogo Furuhashi.

After defeats to Real Betis and Bayer Leverkusen in their first two Group G games, Postecoglou is in no doubt that Tuesday’s match is a must-win game if Celtic are to entertain hopes of reaching the knockout stages.

The Glasgow side are currently bottom of the section after two games.

“There’s no shying away from it – we need a win,” Postecoglou said.

“The other two sides have won their opening two games so if we’re going to bridge that gap we’ve got to win our remaining games, particularly the two at home.

“The prevailing thing for us at the moment is it feels a more settled group. There’s no-one coming and going or coming in at the last minute, everyone’s got to know one another, our football, the way we train. “
