BRENDAN RODGERS has a very enviable decision to make. Which prolific striker does he go with for the run-in?
Now, people might say there’s room for both to play their part but I’d argue that will harm rather than help the team.
We’ve seen this season when both strikers are fit and being changed from game to game, no real flow or momentum is being allowed to build.
We have two very capable strikers who can both fire Celtic to a historic double treble. With Leigh Griffiths in contention for the Ross County game, I believe Brendan Rodgers has a decision to make.
The striker he wants to play in the semi final and potential final should be the striker who gets the nod in the coming weeks. Build real momentum and give as much game time to them as possible.
The Celtic manager has got an easy out if he were to pick Dembele over Griffiths just because Leigh isn’t as match sharp has his teammate at the moment. In that respect, Dembele has the edge and maybe should be the man Rodgers goes with.
Once the semi final is out the way with, if Celtic manage to get to the final then there would be some opportunity to bring the other striker back in but again limited.
When both are fit the question always rears its head and with only one place up for grabs – it will be interesting to see how Rodgers handles it.
Of course, there’s also Osdonne Edouard, but the Celtic manager is right to see the youngster in line behind Moussa and Leigh but gives us a very different option should the game not be going our way, or we need a striker who can keep the ball up our end of the field.
So make your choice, who’s most likely to fire us to a double treble?
Dembele or Griffiths.
