It’s Derby day in Glasgow. Celtic are looking to open a 13 point lead at the top of the table this afternoon. Neil Lennon’s team selection has a few fans scratching their heads though.
Lennon has chosen to bring in Oliver Ntcham when the player has been out for so long. He did boss and score in the last Glasgow Derby at Paradise but that was back in September.
Johnny Hayes gets the nod ahead of the likes of Sinclair, Rogic and Burke. Lennon said in his pre-match interview that both Ntcham and Hayes have impressed him in training, hopefully, they can carry that onto the field of play.
Celtic fans will be happy to see Keiran Tierney in at left-back. It is nine years since any Ibrox side has won at Celtic Park, will Neil Lennon’s selection today keep that impressive stat alive?
Not the team I would have picked but hey ho lets go. 🍀🍀

Did Lenny pick that team while he was out on the beer last night? Certainly a courageous choice.

He has had the chance to work with Ntcham and Hayes while the rest are away.. Maybe a wee surprise in order today in how wee play

Hayes and Ntcham… Really bold but Neil Lennon better have got this one right. ☘️

Definitely don’t give Lennon the job if he is playing Hayes over all of them
