Celtic: Zaluska, Matthews, Lustig, Mulgrew, Izaguirre, Commons, Brown, Wanyama, Ledley, Samaras, Hooper.

Subs: Thomson, Gershon, Stokes, Nouioui, Rogne, Kayal, McGeouch.

Hearts: MacDonald, Barr, Webster, Wilson, McHattie, Holt, McGowan, Taouil, Driver, Paterson, Sutton.

Subs: Ridgers, Gordon Smith, Walker, Prychynenko, Novikovas, Tapping, Carrick.
