Brendan Rodgers drops Celtic team selection hint ahead of Lincoln Red Imps tie

Celtic - Brendan Rodgers Press Conference

Celtic take on Lincoln Red Imps in the second leg of their Champions League tie tomorrow evening.

Brendan Rodgers has suggested that he will name his strongest Celtic line-up in their match against Lincoln Red Imps tomorrow.

Celtic go into the game looking to avoid a huge upset, as they aim to qualify for the Champions League.

The Bhoys were embarrassed last week, when the Gibraltarian part-timers beat them 1-0.

However, Celtic will be determined to right the wrong of that result, in front of an expectant Parkhead crowd.

Rodgers is still gauging the talents of his squad at Celtic, but the Northern Irish boss has suggested he will be taking no risks with his team selection tomorrow evening.

Celtic went into the tie as heavy favourites to win, but their progression has been put into some doubt after the score in the first leg.

Celtic never got going in the first-leg, with many of their key players underperforming.

Rodgers is expected to make changes from the team which started in Gibraltar, with Efe Ambrose’s place looking most at risk.

Celtic have not qualified for the Champions League for the last two seasons.
