ANGE POSTECOGLOU has named his starting XI for Celtic's Premier Sports Cup semi-final against St Johnstone.

The Greece-born Australian will lead his side out at Hampden today as he samples the atmosphere at the national stadium for the first time.

St Johnstone - who have yet to lose a cup game under Callum Davidson - are all that stands between Celtic and a spot in the first cup final of the season.

Postecoglou has opted to retain former Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart in goals, while Josip Juranovic and newly-capped Scotland internationalist Anthony Ralston will slot in at left-back and right-back respectively.

Spurs loanee Cameron Carter-Vickers will once again partner Stephen Welsh in central defence - as he did in the 4-2 win at Dens Park before the international break - with Swedish centre-half Carl Starfelt still recovering from a knock.

Callum McGregor, David Turnbull and Nir Bitton will from the midfield three with Australia internationalist Tom Rogic not deemed fit enough to start at Hampden.

On-loan Benfica winger Jota will start on the left, Israeli winger Liel Abada will line up on the opposite flank while top scorer Kyogo Furuhashi leads the line in attack with Greek centre-forward Giannis Giakoumakis sidelined through injury.
