Speaking ahead of this weekend’s game the Celtic manager has revealed there will be no Kieran Tierney OR James Forrest in the squad when Hearts come to town.
The bhoys have been both struggling with injuries and will not be risked for trophy day. However, the silver lining is both should be available for the Cup Final in ten days time!
Neil is now wrapping his stars in cotton wool after a season of bad injuries for the Celtic squad. The Interim Celtic boss wants to field the best team possible on the day.
Speaking about the pair, Lennon confirmed they wouldn’t be risked on Sunday.
“Kieran Tierney and James Forrest won’t be involved at the weekend but both should be fit for the cup final.” he told CelticTV.
There could be a debut for Karamoko Dembele if the Irishman believes he’s ready for first-team action.
It should be a day where fringe stars can stake their claim for next season and play with a bit of freedom with the pressure off.
