Celtic confirmed line-up v St Mirren: Eboue on bench in unchanged Rodgers XI
By Matt Farr
Brendan Rodgers has named an unchanged Celtic side to face St. Mirren in their Scottish Cup quarter-final clash on Sunday.
The Celtic chief chooses to keep the faith in the eleven that did the business during the 4-0 win over Inverness in the Scottish Premiership on Wednesday.
However, there are few changes to the substitutes bench with Kouassi Eboue coming into the matchday squad, where he could make his first appearance for the club since his January switch.
Patrick Roberts is also back in contention after recovering from a knee injury, and joins Eboue on the bench.
Celtic announced their confirmed line-up on the club’s official Twitter account ahead of kick-off.

Winger James Forrest is still sidelined with a knee injury, as is Tom Rogic, who is on the recovery trail after an operation on his ankle.
A win for Celtic moves them a step closer to winning the domestic treble.
Rodgers’ side already emerged victorious in the Scottish League Cup during the first-half of the campaign, while their remarkable 27 point lead at the top of the Premiership leaves the league title within just seven points.
No Celtic manager has achieved a domestic treble haul since Martin O’Neill’s triumph in 2001, with Rodgers looking set to achieve the feat in his debut season at Parkhead.
