The weekend after an international break can often be a tricky one for managers.

For Ange Postecoglou though, there doesn’t seem to be too many decisions to make for tomorrow's Celtic side.

It looks as though players have returned unscathed ahead of the must-win fixture at Fir Park, while the injury absentees don't seem to have made it in time to be considered.

There's an important European clash against Ferencvaros as well looming in five days, will that impact Postecoglou's selection? Our writers have a guess...

Andy Bargh

Joe Hart, long since banished from the international fold, will continue in goals for the game at Fir Park, while Anthony Ralston is similarly out the picture for Scotland and Adam Montgomery, who looks like the first deputy at left-back in the absence of Greg Taylor, played more than a week ago for the u-21s.

At centre-back, Stephen Welsh played in that same u21 game against Denmark but should be fine for selection; whether or not he is picked ahead of Cameron Carter-Vickers and Carl Starfelt a separate issue and Postecoglou’s choices so far reflect a preference for the two new signings, so that is likely to continue unless either join Christopher Jullien on the injury list.

Callum McGregor was given a brief rest while on international duty and came off the bench for Scotland on Tuesday night against the Faroe Islands, so he’ll play again for Celtic with David Turnbull in the midfield three with him. Will Tom Rogic, again exposed to international exertions for Australia, come straight back into the fold after hours of travelling and time on the pitch? I think not and that James McCarthy will play behind McGregor and Turnbull.

Going forward, Jota is a certainty on the left and Abada is likely to play on the right. Kyogo’s style of play should cause Motherwell’s centre-backs a problem or two and if he’s game-ready he’s a certainty.

Andy's team: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Montgomery; McCarthy, McGregor, Turnbull; Abada, Kyogo, Jota.

It’s become a matter of routine to describe Celtic’s league encounters as ‘must-win’ but there is little question that early-season defeats have ensured that there is little wiggle room for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

Motherwell have had an impressive start to the campaign and will fancy their chances against a Celtic side who continue to exude an aura of defensive vulnerability.

Tony Watt has been impressive so far this term while Kevin van Veen has offered Motherwell an imposing and physical element in opposition boxes. 

Celtic have players who can hurt teams in an attacking sense and will hope that there is no hangover from the likes of Tom Rogic and Kyogo Furuhashi who played against one another on Tuesday afternoon in international duty.

Josip Juranovic’s hamstring issue has yet to fully clear which means that there could be another start in line for Adam Montgomery with Greg Taylor still sidelined.

Callum McGregor played the full 90 minutes of Scotland’s dramatic 3-2 win on Saturday before entering the fray from the bench on Wednesday with the game time working in his favour given the games he missed last month. 

Whoever takes to the field, however, against Motherwell will know that it is about three points regardless of how they come by them. 

Alison's team: Hart; Ralston, Starfelt, Carter-Vickers, Montgomery; McGegor, Turnbull, Rogic; Jota, Kyogo, Abada. 

Sean Martin

Refreshingly after an international break, there does not appear to be any new injury worries for Ange Postecoglou.

As such, you get the feeling it could be pretty much 'as you were' for the visit to Fir Park on Saturday afternoon. Certainly, Joe Hart will start between the sticks while the options directly ahead of him are still limited by availability and so the question is: are things likely to change? I don’t think so.

Nir Bitton was back in the midfield fold at Pittodrie and could retain that spot against the Steelmen alongside Callum McGregor, who returns after yet again demonstrating his at-times-undervalued importance to Scotland.

Unlike the Hoops captain, David Turnbull was given precisely zero game-time by Scots boss Steve Clarke but that could actually be a positive for Postecoglou. The 22-year-old looked a tad jaded before the break so fans will rightly expect him to be refreshed and firing against his old side this weekend.

With James Forrest still presumably unlikely to start, Liel Abada and Jota will once again occupy the wings with Kyogo Furuhashi through the middle after plenty of travelling but, thankfully, little action during his trip with Japan. Giorgos Giakoumakis will be waiting in reserve if required, with a fair amount of versatility on offer between the starting front three to accommodate him.

Sean’s team: Hart; Ralston, Carter-Vickers, Starfelt, Montgomery; Bitton, McGregor; Abada, Turnbull, Jota; Kyogo.
