Celtic fans blown away as Rodgers starts 25-yr-old v St Johnstone
Celtic fans on Twitter have been blown away with delight as midfielder Tom Rogic is set to make his first start for the Hoops in three months, in the game against St Johnstone.
The team was announced on the Hoops’ official Twitter account a short time ago.

Attention was immediately drawn to the return to the first-team of the 25-year-old, whose creativity has been much missed in the months he has been out of the side.
Here are some of the best reactions to the return of the Australian from Twitter:

The return of Rogic is just one of seven changes made by Brendan Rodgers from the side which defeated Zenit 1-0 in the Europa League.
In defence only Kristoffer Ajer maintains his place in the side, as Cristian Gamboa, Callum Miller and Jack Hendry all get rare starts.
In midfield the match-winner against Zenit Callum McGregor captains the side, joined by Eboue Kouassi, who keeps his place in the side after a barnstorming performance against Zenit, and Rogic.
Up-front Odsonne Edouard is the lone striker, where we will be supported by Scott Sinclair and Charly Musonda.
The team selection is certainly a gamble, but with the return leg in Russia against Zenit less than a week away it’s one that the Hoops boss feels is worth taking.
