CELTIC have a massive cup final to prepare for in the next five days. Neil Lennon could possibly be leading the team out for the very last time if the club decides to take a new direction this summer.
Until then, he’s the man in charge and will help decide our fate on Cup final day in Glasgow.
There’s a lot on the line for Celtic with a treble treble the prize for a win against Hearts. It’s vital Neil Lennon picks the right team and squad on the day to make sure of victory.
Sunday’s trophy day game against the Jambos threw up a potential wild card in Karamoko Dembele – the player came on for Oli Burke at the start of the second half and impressed.
The 16-year-old only got a run out because the league had already been secured but he took his opportunity with both hands. This has now left a situation where many Celtic fans would like to see young Dembele take a place in the Cup final squad.
However, is it too soon and should Neil Lennon be picking a bench that he would be able to call upon if Celtic were in desperate need of a goal? Does that become an issue, if you’re looking at your bench with 20 minutes to go and you need a spark, is it the best idea to lay that on the shoulders of someone so young?
It will be interesting to see if Neil Lennon rewards Karamoko with a place on the bench.
