Neil Lennon has today provided a positive injury update at his press conference saying that we have no further injuries going into Sunday’s Scottish Cup final against Hearts.

This season has been very up and down for many reasons, one of those being injury/covid related. At one point or another, the vast majority of this squad have missed out on some of our biggest games of the season but we are slowly but surely getting back to full strength again.
In the last few fixtures, the likes of Oliver Ntcham, Nir Bitton and Hatem Elhamed have all missed out, so it is expected to be the same for Sunday. It also means we still have a squad stacked full of talent including the likes of Odsonne Edouard, Christopher Jullien and Mikey Johnston who made his long-awaited return last weekend against Kilmarnock.
It leaves Lennon with many options to choose from, possibly even giving him a dilemma. However, I am sure most Celtic fans would agree, they would like to see a similar side put out last week.
