Rodgers must start Johnston and Ralston today

Rodgers must start Johnston and Ralston today

Celtic will be keen to mount an unassailable lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table, with Steven Gerrard’s Rangers still breathing down their neck. 

The Hoops already have the Scottish League Cup under their belt this season, so their attention will immediately turn to the Scottish Cup in the hope that Brendan Rodgers can secure yet another treble.

Indeed, Celtic will welcome Airdrieonians to Celtic Park in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup. The Diamonds are going strong in League One after winning a number of games recently, so the Hoops will need to work hard to avoid a big upset later on today.

Nevertheless, these TWO Celtic players can step up and keep Rodgers’ treble dream alive today…

MICHAEL JOHNSTON

Michael Johnston is enjoying his breakthrough season under Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, and is quickly becoming a key member at Celtic Park as he continues to impress.

The youngster has already scored three goals in the league this season, so he will be looking to hit the ground running later on today to improve his chances of securing a regular place in the side.

His trickery, pace and finishing ability could cause a side like Airdrieonians a lot of problems.

ANTHONY RALSTON

Anthony Ralston has looked impressive during his limited amount of minutes on the field this season, but he is yet to really do enough to warrant a regular place in the side.

However, today’s game against a League One opposition will provide him with the perfect opportunity to make a name for himself, with an accomplished performance piling the pressure on Mikael Lustig.
