NEIL LENNON has all but confirmed Ismaila Soro will be back in for the visit of Ross County on Wednesday night. The Celtic manager will come up against the side who knocked them out of the cup last month and could’ve cost him his job.
This time around, it’s league duty and Celtic look a different side going forward.
Defensively, we’re still shaky but breaking down teams is coming a bit easier again.
With extra time and penalties being played on Sunday at Hampden, it stands to reason there will be some changes.
Neil Lennon confirms two of those changes will be most likely forced due to injuries.
Shane Duffy and Scott Brown are both struggling to be fit for Wednesday’s game the manager confirmed to CelticTV.
“Scott Brown’s a major doubt and Shane Duffy is a bit of a doubt. Not long term, they should be ok for Boxing Day.
“We will look to freshen things up again because mentally and physically it’d taken a lot out of them on Sunday.”
“Olivier Ntcham is back training. Elhamed is out on the training pitch so he’s not a million miles away.”
A midfielder pairing of Turnbull and Soro looks more than likely. Will Conor Hazard keep his place? The shot-stopper made himself a penalty shootout hero but he had a rough game otherwise against Hearts.
