Celtic travel to Hampden Park to take on Hibernian in the Scottish League Cup final this afternoon and Ange Postecoglou has named his team.
The fans are buzzing with Postecoglou for including Kyogo Furuhashi in the starting eleven. They have been without him in recent weeks and his return will be vital. He has been directly involved in 19 goals in just 24 games. Jota however, was not fit enough to return to the squad.
Will Celtic win the Scottish League Cup?
After Celtic Tweeted out the team news, the fans flocked to the replies to voice their opinion.
How the Celtic fans reacted
“Kyogo has returned!” @MattAll70333850
“Kyogo better be 100% fit because if he gets injured again am gonny fight u Mr.Celtic.” @Jack98Uptherebs
“Buzzing Kyogo starts. Can’t believe Ralston didn’t get the nod from the off. Spewer for the boy. Mon the Celtic.” @frasertee
“That’s what we are talking about. Kyogo returns!” @barryjflack
“Strong line-up – Kyogo back has honestly put a huge smile across my face. Got a feeling Mikey Johnston will score today.” @Rognvald11
It’s a maiden cup final for Postecoglou who will be desperate for silverware. It’s been an underwhelming campaign so far for the Hoops, already being relegated to the Europa Conference League.
Things don’t get much better domestically with arch rivals Rangers looking unflappable with their seven point advantage over Celtic. Given the Gers have only lost once all season, it’s going to be an uphill task for Postecoglou to dethrone Rangers.
That makes today even more important, with the Scottish League Cup being the best chance for success this season.
