The teamlines are in at Easter Road as Hibs host Celtic in their final league game of the 2020/21 Scottish Premiership season.
Hibs have rotated their XI heavily, David Gray, Ryan Porteous, Jamie Murphy, Drey Wright, Kyle Magennis and Lewis Stevenson coming in ahead of the Scottish Cup final next weekend, Ofir Marciano back between the sticks for his final league game as a Hibs player as he prepares to leave the club. He has been linked to Celtic and Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
Greg Taylor and Callum McGregor return to the starting XI for Celtic as Adam Montgomery and James Forrest drop out. In essence, this is a dead rubber for both, Hibs confirmed as third place finishers while Celtic sit above in second. It will be an emotional occasion though as Hibs academy product Scott Brown plays his final game of a 14-year stint at Celtic, having moved to Glasgow from Edinburgh in 2007.
Ross has paid tribute ahead of kick-off: “It’s important I pay tribute to Scott and what he’s achieved at Celtic. It’s absolutely remarkable the number of trophies he’s won and the contribution he’s made to his club and country too. I’m sure it will be a strange feeling for him when full-time goes.”
Here are the XI’s in Leith.
Marciano, Gray, Porteous, McGregor, Stevenson, Hallberg, Gogic, Newell, Magennis, Wright, Murphy
Barkas, Kenny, Ajer, Welsh, Taylor, Brown, McGregor, Turnbull, Christie, Elyounoussi, Edouard
