Celtic fans have had to use up more energy this week with transfer speculation rather than the fact that Celtic have just 90 minutes to ensure the Bhoys continue playing European football this season. As one of our bloggers alluded to earlier, Tonight Matters.
It’s hard to talk about tonights game and not get drawn into all the transfer speculation. Celtic have been linked with so many players over the past month but very few of them are been snapped at Glasgow Airport. Does tonights team selection give anything away with outgoing players?
Brendan Rodgers confirmed Dembele and his agents are speaking with Lyon representatives but that no official offer had come in for the player. Does Dembele’s exclusion from the squad this evening tell more of the story?
With Edouard still fighting for fitness, Leigh Griffiths is tasked with leading the line tonight as he seeks to fire himself 100 goals for the club. Mikey Johnston makes it back into the starting 11 as it was his tricky wing play that set up Celtic’s goal last week. Tom Rogic is on the bench with James Forrest.
