A supreme 2021-22 campaign not only saw Celtic regather the Premiership crown, but also throw down a marker to the naysayers that they would not respond to Ange Postecoglou's style of football, completing a double with the League Cup to boot.

Now, the Greek-Australian has fettled his squad and will hope to take them even further this year - and could well draw inspiration from rivals Rangers' own continental exploits to make a great stab into Europe this term too.

Predicted Celtic starting XI: Hart; Juranovic, Carter-Vickers, Welsh, Taylor; McGregor, Turnbull, O'Riley; Jota, Furuhashi, Forrest

PositionAberdeen roster
Goalkeepers Lewis, Roos
Defenders MacKenzie, Scales, Stewart, Coulson, Richardson, Bates,
Midfielders McCrorie, Barron, Ramadani, Hayes, Polvara, Duncan, Milne

Forwards

Miovski, Besuijen, Lopes, Watkins, McLennan, Kennedy, Roberts, Ramirez

A rough 2021-22 campaign saw Aberdeen just dodge the drop and the need to fight it out in the Premiership play-off final - and now they'll hope that with a new term, they can push on into a brighter future under a fresh guiding hand.

Jim Goodwin took the reins halfway through last season, and with a full schedule of games under his belt to get his side up and running, the ex-St Mirren boss will hope to be able to impart a little bit of joy back to life with the Dons.

Predicted Aberdeen starting XI: Lewis; Richardson, Stewart, Scales, Hancock; McCrorie, Ramadani; Kennedy, Besuijen, Hayes; Miovski.
