NEIL LENNON has confirmed our earlier suspicion that Karamoko Dembele could make his Euro debut for the bhoys on Thursday night by admitting the player had travelled with the squad.
The Celtic manager has left five of his first team stars behind and confirmed Leigh Griffiths will be in amongst the action on Romania along with forgotten treble treble star Sinclair.
🗣 NL: “We’ve got a strong team. Young Robertson, Dembele and Savoury are in the squad. Whether they start is another thing.

The bhoys have nothing to play for except from €570k win bonus in play from UEFA.
They have qualified top of a group they were tipped to struggle in. The players could play a big part in who else qualifies from the group. Cluj just need a point against the Scottish Champions to drop Lazio out of the competition.
It will be up to a makeshift Celtic side to make a game of it. Sinclair getting a game could be significant but it could just be a gesture from Neil Lennon before the player heads for the Parkhead exit.
