Three changes Deila could make ahead of Celtic's next game

Ronny Deila could make some big changes to his Celtic side for the game against St Mirren.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila doesn’t have too much to worry about because his side are in a very good position.

The treble is on and the boss has a high quality group of players who are challenging each other and demanding the best from each other on a weekly basis.

The boss needs to think of ways to keep all players on their toes and one thing he could do is rotate a little bit once the international break is over.

Here are three changes he could make.

A run of games for Forrest

There was a little bit of surprise when Gordon Strachan called up James Forrest and not Gary Mackay-Steven to the Scotland squad, but the former Bhoys manager explained Forrest has the ability to change games like no one else.

Deila could draft him back into the first team after the break, after he was an unused substitute during the match against Dundee United last weekend.

A run of games for Scepovic

One way Deila can keep loan player John Guidetti and Leigh Griffiths on their toes is by drafting Stefan Scepovic back into the team.

Scepovic has found game time difficult to come by under Deila this season, with the Norwegian challenging him to go away and work on his game.

He came on in the last game and is pushing for a start in attack.

A run of games for Matthews

Efe Ambrose has done a good job on the right hand side of the defence but when fit and available Matthews could do well if shown a bit of faith.

He's a young player so there is a risk element involved with the pressure high over the rest of the season, but he offers balance with Mikael Lustig also out of action.
