Insider details potential Celtic starting line-up ahead of semi-final v Rangers

Rangers fans may know the Celtic line-ahead of the Scottish Cup semi-final on Sunday as it appears to have leaked online, according to an Ibrox insider.

The Est Consultancy Twitter account, which is a very reliable source of news about the club, and has got a good track-record on team news, noted that the line-up was ‘unconfirmed’, but posted the news on the account a short time ago.

If the team-news turns out to be true, the most interesting aspect is that the Hoops have moved to four at the back, with Mikael Lustig back at right-back, whilst the rest of the team is probably as expected.

Only time will tell if the reported team-news is true, but it certainly adds to the intrigue ahead of the huge game on Sunday.

Football Insider verdict

The first thing to say is that most Celtic fans won’t believe the team, as it has come from a Rangers fan account, even if it does have a record of getting team-news correct, as that is just the nature of the Old Firm rivalry. But if the leaked team tuns out to be correct, then it is the one that most fans expected to be the starting line-up, with Tom Rogic set to be a key player for the Hoops and he will be looking for a third goal against the Ibrox side this season. Social media has certainly added to the Old Firm rivalry in recent years, and this is just another example of that.
