Celtic face off against one of their toughest opponents – Hibs at Easter Road. The Edinburgh ground has proved a difficult place to go for Celtic in recent times. Ironically, it was Neil Lennon’s team who were getting the better of a Brendan Rodgers side.
If you like irony, Lennon had to return to Easter Road as a Celtic manager a week after his new appointment at Parkhead. The Irishman left with a 2 nil win and knocked Hibs out of the Scottish Cup. He will be looking for a similar result and performance today.
Lennon has been questioned the last few weeks over his inclusion of Johnny Hayes in the team but the Dubliner has proved Lennon was right to make the call with some big performances. Today will be the turn of Oliver Ntcham and Izaguirre to prove the manager right. Tom Rogic on the bench with Ntcham starting will not go down well with some fans. So far there is no explanation as to Kieran Tierney’s whereabouts but Izaguirre will need to put on a performance today. The rest of the is as it was last week.
