Celtic ready to bounce back against Hearts: Team News

(Sporting Alert) — Celtic will seek to bounce back from its weekend setback when Neil Lennon’s side takes on Hearts in the Scottish Premier at Tynecastle on Wednesday night.

The league champions suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Inverness and will be hoping to return to winning ways against a very challenging Hearts side.

Captain Scott Brown has again been named on the bench tonight, but Kelvin Wilson, who missed out at the weekend because of illness is back.

Joe Ledley is also back from an injury, while scoring threat Georgios Samaras was named on the bench.

Celtic leads the Sottish Premier League on goal difference – as the team is on 25 points, alongside Inverness. Hearts, in the meantime, are in ninth place on 18 points from 15 games so far.
