Team News: Four changes made by Celtic for Hamilton Academical test

Tyler Blackett returns to Celtic's starting lineup for the trip to take on Hamilton Academical as one of four changes.

Ronny Deila has made four changes to his starting lineup for Celtic's trip to face Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Premiership.

With just one win in their last three league outings, the Hoops are in need of three points this afternoon to close the gap on leaders Aberdeen.

Saidy Janko, Tyler Blackett, Emilio Izaguirre and Tom Rogic all come back into the fold following the 2-2 draw against Fenerbahce in the Europa League three days ago.

In terms of the hosts, who are currently on a two-game winning run, they can call upon Lucas Tagliapietra once again in attack in their attempt to further dent Celtic's title aspirations.

Hamilton Academical: McGovern; Gordon, Kurakins, Gillespie, Imrie; Crawford, Kurtaj, Morris, MacKinnon, Garcia; Tena, Tagliapietra
Subs: D'Acol, Sendles-White, Longridge, Docherty, Lyon, Nade, Martin

Celtic: Gordon; Janko, Boyata, Blackett, Izaguirre; Brown, Bitton; Commons, Rogic, Forrest; Griffiths
Subs: Bailly, Ciftci, Armstrong, Mackay-Steven, Lustig, McGregor, Tierney
