NEIL LENNON has given Celtic fans some good news in the past week with Filip Benkovic and Callum McGregor back in the team. The Irishman also lifted the fans spirits with the news Olivier Ntcham and Tom Rogic are pushing to be fit for the Glasgow Derby.
However, it’s not all good news for the bhoys in green with one notable absence in the team come kick off at the end of March. Neil Lennon has confirmed Ryan Christie will NOT make the tie and will have to watch from the stands as his team-mates look to create a thirteen point gap.

Christie broke onto the scene this year under Brendan Rodgers and has been a revelation, scoring the winner in the League Cup final. The midfielder’s form had colled off in recent months BUT his ability to play a key pass or make something happen is always a big threat. It’s unfortunate Celtic will be unable to call upon the Scottish international against Steven Gerrard’s men.
If the club can get Rogic back in time, it would prove a major boost and certainly cushion the blow of a Christie absence.
