CELTIC take on St Mirren tonight knowing they will have to play a lot better if they are to get a positive result. The bhoys were turned over on their own patch just a few weeks ago by the Paisley side.
Neil Lennon remains in charge of this side who scraped a 2-1 win against Motherwell at the weekend. He’s hoping the bhoys can put in a more robust performance for the full 90 minutes, after 65 minutes against the Steelmen, we crumbled.
It’s very hard to predict the team nowadays, Neil Lennon can change formation and personnel on a whim. Scott Brown keeps his place in the side for the third game in a row, Neil Lennon citing Soro getting into a car accident in the snow as a reason why the midfielder would only make the bench.
Bain continuing in goals while Barkas sits on the bench was expected.
Bain, Taylor, Brown, Ajeti, Turnbull, Kenny, Rogic, Edouard, Ajer, McGregor, Welsh
Subs: Barkas, Duffy, Griffiths, Klimala, Soro, Christie, Johnston, Elyounoussi, Laxalt
Shane Duffy’s Celtic career looks over, the only way the player gets back into this team now is if injuries occur. With Celtic’s luck this season, you wouldn’t bet against it happening. I feel for the big man because he is a big Celtic fan but the move has just not worked out at all and it has to go down as an expensive mistake.
Ajeti keeping his place was also expected, I could only imagine the uproar if Neil Lennon dropped the striker after the club fought his corner on an SFA charge. Why don’t we give the lad the full game?
Eddy has looked more like himself in recent times, I’m expecting a lot from the Frenchman this evening.
A good performance and three points would give everyone a boost.
