Senior player axed in Rodgers 3-5-2: Celtic best possible XI v Hearts


Celtic will want to put out a warning to their nearest challengers when they take on Hearts at Tynecastle this weekend.

There is the real possibility that the Hoops will go into the game only two points clear of Rangers and Aberdeen, albeit with a game in hand.

Brendan Rodgers’ team will be out score goals galore to show that they are still, by far, the best team in Scotland.

This means a formation and personnel changes from the side which defeated Hamilton 3-1 at Celtic Park.

The 3-4-3 will be replaced by a 3-5-2, to add an extra attacking threat up-front.

Personnel wise, Kieran Tierney and Mikael Lustig must come in to replace Nir Bitton and the struggling with injury Deryck Boyata, as will Moussa Dembele and Leigh Griffiths, replacing Odsonne Edouard and Stuart Armstrong and playing up-front together for the first time in a while.
