NEIL LENNON will have already selected his team for the game against Hibernian on Saturday evening and it’s interesting trying to second guess the Celtic manager.
Some of the side picks itself but there are other areas where he could go with a couple of options.
The big one in my eyes is how much he’s willing to give to Jeremie Frimpong this early in not only his Celtic career but football career in general.
Having played three professional games and impressing in all three outings the Celtic manager has a decision to make over who he goes with at Hampden. Frimpong is the man on form while Elhamed hasn’t played since the Lazio game when he went off injured.
It’s a pick between use and experience and it will be interesting to see how Lennon sees it. The Celtic manager is direct and can spring a surprise – that’s why I’m swaying towards a Jeremie Frimpong start in the competition. A semi-final place for a lad we hadn’t even heard of when we were playing Dunfermline in our first fixture in the competition.
