Confirmed: Celtic line-up v St. Johnstone - Rogic and Van Dijk start

Here is how Celtic will line up against St. Johnstone today...

Celtic starting XI: Gordon; Janko, Boyata, van Dijk, Izaguirre; Brown, Bitton; Commons, Rogic, Mackay-Steven; Griffiths.

Celtic substitutes: Bailly, Ambrose, Mulgrew, Allan, McGregor, Forrest, Stokes

Celtic return to league action this afternoon as they host St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership, with Ronny Deila looking to bounce back from the midweek catastrophe against Malmo.

The Bhoys suffered heartbreak in Sweden as Malmo coasted to a 2-0 win against Deila's men, meaning Celtic have missed out on the Champions League yet again, and have to settle for a Europa League place.

For now, the attention has to be on the league campaign, with St. Johnstone travelling to Glasgow, no doubt in the hope of piling on Celtic's woes.

Deila has made a number of changes to his side today, with Stefan Johansen out of the squad entirely, whilst Tom Rogic starts in midfield.

Virgil van Dijk also starts despite speculation surrounding his future, with notable names like James Forrest, Anthony Stokes and new signing Scott Allan all available from the bench.

Celtic will be expected to win the game comfortably, and fans will be looking for a major response from their side after the Malmo debacle.
