Hopefully you’ve come out of your hole in the ground by now, after all that is where we went following Celtic’s 7-0 loss to Barcelona on Tuesday night at the Camp Nou.

Thankfully it is the return to the Scottish Premiership and a welcome site known as Inverness to help one get over that bad taste in your mouth. With the reigning Scottish champs starting off the domestic season in perfect form, Celtic will look to put the mid-week disaster behind itself.

How that happens will say volumes about Brendan Rodgers’ team, and given the massive amount games one has to wonder what kind of squad rotation will be happening. Will we see any of that begin to take shape this weekend?

Let’s take a look at our guess as to how the Hoops come out against Inverness on Sunday.


Dorus De Vries

Goalkeeper, Celtic

No player on the pitch on Tuesday felt more helpless than De Vries did between the sticks for Celtic. That said, expect him to get another run out as Rodgers has stuck with him this far. It was hard to fault him for anything Barcelona did in goal-fest and taking him out also means another blow to already fragile confidence. Unless Rodgers sees Gordon doing something on the training ground he hasn’t seen before De Vries is the first-choice keeper at Celtic Park.
