Only once before, in a Scottish Cup tie against St Mirren, has Brendan Rodgers named an unchanged team.
The Celtic boss has a big squad to choose from with a real variety of midfield talent to select from as he judges the demands of each fixture that his side faces.
Saturday’s win at Ibrox looked like a good warm up for the Champions League tie with Anderlecht but after going with a few ‘local’ players he is likely to go for a slightly more continental approach on Wednesday night.
Anderlecht will provide a far more searching test of Celtic defensively which is hardly rocket science after the powder puff ‘threat’ from Sevco. Henri Onyekuru is a big step up in class from Alfredo Morelos.
Rodgers has already gone on record saying that a point would be a good result, while that approach is 100% accurate it’s a slight change on his previous comments where every game is there to be won.
The Celtic boss has side starting XI in mind two games in advance, it is one game at a time but Patrick Roberts was replaced at Ibrox to give him a breather before going in against the Belgian champions.
Rodgers probably has a good idea about when he will make his substitutions in Brussels, no stone is left unturned with the one certainty being that anything Celtic take from the match will be a 14 man job.
