The most intriguing aspect of the side was who would be in goals, but Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers has elected to choose his usual number one Craig Gordon instead of Scott Bain.
Fans also seem delighted that Tom Rogic is in the starting line-up, in the week where he has signed a new five-year deal for the Bhoys.
