Confirmed: Celtic and Dundee United line-ups - Guidetti starts

Celtic

Here is how Celtic and Dundee United will line up this afternoon:

Celtic starting line-up: Gordon; Ambrose, Denayer, van Dijk, Izaguirre; Brown, Bitton; Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Armstrong; Guidetti.

Celtic substitutes: Zaluska, Scepovic, Griffiths, Commons, Fisher, Forrest, Henderson.

Dundee United starting line-up: Cierzniak; Dixon, Fojut, Souttar, McGowan; Paton, Rankin, Butcher, Spittal, Telfer; Ciftci

Dundee United substitutes: Zwick, Dow, Muirhead, Spark, Connolly, Erskine, Anier.

Celtic meet Dundee United for the fourth game in a row this afternoon, with the Terrors once again travelling to Celtic Park for the second time in four days.

The Bhoys drew 1-1 with Jackie McNamara's men in the first game in the Scottish Cup, before beating them 2-0 in the Scottish League Cup final last Sunday.

Celtic then made it two wins in a row by winning 4-0 on Wednesday night, and now this afternoon sees the end of a remarkable run of fixtures.

Former Dundee United duo Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong return to the starting line-up having been cup-tied for the last three games, whilst John Guidetti is back up front despite Leigh Griffiths' fine form.

Dundee United have Nadir Ciftci in their line-up again, with the controversial striker no doubt keen to score against Celtic amid recent trouble with Bhoys captain Scott Brown.
