CELTIC get set to welcome Hearts to Celtic Park on Sunday afternoon when the bhoys get back down to league business.
Celtic have played in a Champions League qualifier, a League Cup tie and a Europa League qualifier since they were last in domestic action. After two games in the league, Celtic have 12 goals to their name and have only two against.
Wins over St Johnstone and Motherwell have given Celtic a good platform to build their season on and now they must show their ruthless side against the Jambos on Sunday.
Neil Lennon should resist the urge to change the team too much from Thursday night’s win against AIK and let the team gel more. Christopher Jullien came into the fold and did well, still room for improvement but it’s early days for the Frenchman.
The good news for the Scottish champions is Hearts will be without two of their top player’s for the visit. SunSport confirmed yesterday that John Souttar and Stevie Naismith will both miss the game through injury.
Hearts are still searching for their first victory of the season but everyone knows they up their game against Celtic so it’s going to be a difficult game for the bhoys to negotiate regardless of form.
