CELTIC will be without five players for the Hearts game on Sunday as Neil Lennon tries to get his Scottish Cup side together.

It’s not so much the luxury of being able to rest players as it is hoping they are fit for the following week for the Scottish Cup Final.

Kieran Tierney, James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard, Jonny Hayes and Mikael Lustig look all set to miss playing on trophy day with the expectation they will be back the following week according to SunSport.

Celtic will take on Hearts this Sunday with nothing at stake for either side. Hearts are expected to play a skeleton side as well as Celtic as both prepare for next Sunday.

Lennon could hand a debut to Karamoko Dembele and could bring back Ewan Henderson into the fold for the league tie.

This will be Celtic’s last SPFL game of the season and when we kick back off in August, it’s anyone’s guess who the manager will be.
