Neil Lennon has admitted it may be time for rotation in his squad, in particular within the midfield, meaning we could see Celtic captain Scott Brown dropping out sooner rather than later.
As reported by the Sun, Lennon made the suggestion after yesterday 3-2 win over Livingston in which he suggested it could be time for players like David Turnbull to get a chance
“It’s common sense (rotation). Broony knows he’ll not be able to play all the games — but he’s very fit, as he always has been.
“There may be games where he could do with putting his feet up or getting a bit of breathing space. We’ll try to have him ready for the really intense games where his experience and quality are valuable.”
Many fans, have called for the Celtic manager to make this change after a poor start to the Celtic captains standards, this season.
This is due to the abundance of quality we have, ready to take his place in the starting line-up for game like yesterday, where he may no be needed as much until possibly later in the game to shut things out.
The likes of Ryan Christie, Oliver Ntcham and David Turnbull looking capable of playing in there alongside mainstay Callum McGregor.
For me, I do think it is time we take Scott Brown out the team for certain games. He isn’t getting any younger at 35 and we have serval players who can slot into midfield at the minute.
I do also believe though, that he still has his uses in this squad and could be a big pulse for us in big games, in which we may need his defensive qualities more or his leadship.
At the end of the day, it is a squad game and we might need to start using it more now.
