Celtic predicted starting XI v Aberdeen: 1 change with Idah set for first start and Carter-Vickers injured

Celtic predicted starting line-up v Aberdeen with Norwich loanee Adam Idah expected to be given his first run out in the green and white hoops

Celtic venture to the North East for a lunchtime kick-off against Aberdeen on Saturday with Brendan Rodgers' side bidding to extend their winning league run to six games.

The Hoops sit five points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership table and can stretch that advantage to eight points win a victory over the managerless Dons at Pittodrie.

Aberdeen sacked manager Barry Robson earlier this week, with the club languishing down in eight position after registering only 24 points from 21 matches. They remain without a win in three outings since the winter break.

Rodgers is expected to hand Deadline Day signing Adam Idah his debut following the striker's arrival from English Championship side Norwich City on loan for the rest of the season. But there will be no place in the starting XI for central defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, who faces another three weeks on the treatment table after suffering a fresh injury blow.
