Celtic fans on social media have been reacting with bemusement to the starting line-up for the Hoops’ match against Hibernian.

The team, which was announced a short time ago on the club’s official Twitter page, has one big talking point, as Moussa Dembele misses out, to be replaced by noted Hibernian fan Leigh Griffiths.

Dembele isn’t on the bench either, so he must have an injury.

The other change to the side which defeated Rangers 4-0 in the Scottish Cup sees Jack Hendry – who has yet to win a game he has started for the Hoops – replacing Mikael Lustig, is a match which will see the Hoops crowned Champions if they pick up the three points.

One fan claims it is a ‘great idea’ to play Griffiths against the team he supports, only time will tell on that.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the Hoops’ starting line-up:


The Hoops will not have it easy at Easter Road, as Neil Lennon will be determined that his team’s ground isn’t the scene for a Hoops title party.

The Bhoys have struggled at times against Hibernian this season, drawing the first two league games between the sides 2-2 and winning the other 1-0, thanks to a goal by Griffiths.
