Confirmed: Celtic line-up v FC Stjarnan

Celtic Football Club

Here is the side Celtic boss Ronny Deila has selected to face FC Stjarnan this evening.

Celtic: Lustig, Boyata, van Dijk, Mulgrew; Brown, Bitton; Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Armstrong; Ciftci

Subs: Izaguirre, Ambrose, Griffiths, Stokes, Rogic, Forrest, Bailly

Celtic are in a good position heading into the second leg of their Champions League qualifying game against FC Stjarnan.

Ronny Deila’s team worked hard to create an advantage for themselves in the first game between these sides and have a 2-0 cushion as they continue their pursuit of a place in the Champions League group stage.

The Champions League is a platform that a team of Celtic’s size should definitely be looking to cash in on this season and it represents a number of positive possibilities for the club.

It’s a great source for extra revenue and it’s also a great competition for Deila to challenge his players due to the higher quality of the competition, which represents a chance for all of the club’s players to refine their games.

It will be interesting to see whether Deila wants his team to sit off and protect their lead or go after the game to try and increase their advantage.
