Since Thursday night, most supporters and pundits have urged Neil Lennon to ditch the three at the back and go back to the 4-3-3 which served them so well during this trophy-laden run.

While the 3-5-2 was a game changer last season, it hasn’t worked so far this term and now Celtic need to get back to what brought them to the dance.

Pat Nevin has echoed the sentiments of the Celtic support and many fellow pundits when he explained the frailties of the 3-5-2.

“When you are playing three at the back and you can’t get through teams, that’s why Celtic fans are asking the question.” Nevin told BBC Radio as reported by RecordSport.

“I don’t think that three at the back is going to last much longer for Celtic.

“With the personnel they’ve got, they are much better getting in another midfielder and letting the creativity flourish.”

The bhoys have just fallen to back to back home defeats and now they face a trick away day to Aberdeen on Sunday. It’s imperative Neil Lennon gets the team selection spot on with the Dons on a good run of form.

Pittodrie always presents a tough challenge but the bhoys should be up for the game and hopefully they can land three points to keep the pressure on at the top of the table.
