IT'S difficult to know how Celtic will react to their thrilling 3-3 draw with Inter Milan as they welcome Hamilton (1pm).

I was delighted with Xherdan Shaqiri netting first on Thursday to justify my “tips don't lie” claim but Ronny Deila's did well to recover and keep the tie alive – even though I can't see them progressing.

I'd be amazed if the Norwegian boss didn't make sweeping changes ahead of Thursday's second leg so team news will be vital.

Hamilton haven't won under Martin Canning but did shock Celtic 1-0 at Parkhead earlier in the season. A repeat Accies success pays 16-1 at boylesports but it's on current form it's tough to back them as they haven't won since Alex Neil left for Norwich and what a job he's doing there.

It was the on-loan Swede's first goal this year and he could be on a run again. Take him at 4-1 with boylesports to hit the opener.

Celtic, no bigger than 2-9 with McBookie and others, should do enough to win as Kris Commons, James Forrest and Anthony Stokes could be back and midweek hero John Guidetti could start after coming off the bench midweek to net against his former Man City manager Roberto Mancini.

Accies lost top scorer Anthony Andreu to Norwich as well as Neil and have really struggled but could score if Celtic make changes at the back, including a rest for keeper Craig Gordon while of course Mikael Lustig remains out.

Just to find the net Accies look a little big at 16-11 with 888sport – and they'll have a bit if belief having already won at Parkhead.

Despite that I'm happy to consider Celtic -1 even though it pays 8-13 at Skybet while Celtic/Celtic HT/FT is also 8-13 at Paddy Power.
