MOST of Celtic's players have been on international duty and that could affect their energy levels at Hamilton tonight.

It's not ideal for Brendan Rodgers to have a Friday game but at least it gives players an extra day's rest ahead of next week's Champions League opener against PSG.

Half Celtic's team played two games for Scotland and others such as Mikael Lustig and the far-flung Tom Rogic were also away.

Accies had everyone at home and meet the champions in good form having picked up seven points from three games.

Even on the back of a 53-match unbeaten domestic run it's difficult to back the champions at a best 1-4 with Ladbrokes at the Superseal Stadium so let's look at options.

Both to score and overs is possible as we know Celtic have problems at the back with Jozo Simunovic the only centre-half and he's uneasy about playing on plastic. That pays 6-4 at boylesport while btts on its own is 5-4 at bet365.

Leigh Griffiths returned from Scotland duty with a minor injury and is likely to be saved for PSG so there could be a start for new boy Odsonne Edouard who is on loand from the French giants. The young hitman is 4-1 at bet365 to break the deadlock and evens to net.

Scott Sinclair is one player who hasn't been away and in Griffiths's absence could be the man to back to break the deadlock at 17-4 with McBookie. To net at any time Sinclair is 5-4.

And then of course there is Patrick Roberts who could be handed a second debut after returning from Man City. The midfielder netted 15 goals in 29 league starts for Celtic and is 5-1 with McBookie to score first and 7-4 at Paddy Power to mark his comeback with a goal.

Callum McGregor maybe should have been involved with Scotland but wasn't so will have plenty to prove to Gordon Strachan. He is 8-1 with Unibet to break the deadlock and 5-2 to net.

      Mr f I wasn’t that impressed with Hamilton, they were nowhere near as bad as us but they weren’t great, I know they won 3-1 but I think if we had played like that against anyone else we would easily have conceded 7 or 8 goals, not one outfield player turned up for that game
