It is semi-final day in the Scottish Cup and Celtic are looking to claim a date with Hearts on the 25th of May to challenge for another treble-winning season. First, they need to get past a resolute Aberdeen side.
It is fair to say Neil Lennon has got all the right results so far, some fans want to see the results achieved by playing much better football. Chris Sutton commented yesterday that Celtic’s season has been flat as a pancake. It is hard to argue with that, Celtic have been good at times but consistency has been lacking.
Lennon has sprung one surprise today with the selection of Johnny Hayes over Scott Sinclair. Hayes has started to feature a lot more in the final part of the season and in truth he has not done a lot wrong but a lot of people will be surprised to see him get the nod.
Big Jozo has got the call over Benkovic at the back to pair up with the very much in form Kris Ajer. The rest of the team is probably as expected. Kick off from Hampden is 2 pm. Weah, Sinclair and Rogic all start on the bench and are all big impact players if they are needed.
