NEIL LENNON will have his team locked in and he’ll be ready to go for this afternoon but who will make it into the coveted starting lineup for today’s Scottish Cup Final?

We are trying to second guess the Celtic manager and come up with the starting XI which he thinks will bring home the trophy.

Here’s how we think he’ll line up.

Hazard – Would be a massive call considering this would be just his third first team appearance for the club.

Ajer: Right Back Ajer likes to operate up and down the flank and looks enthusiastic.

Duffy: Can he prove his doubters wrong with a strong final performance?

Jullien: If fit, he has to start, always in my opinion. He is a big game player.

Laxalt: The Uruguayan is out best left-back so he should get the nod.

Brown: We think the pull of bringing Scott back into the fray for the cup final will be too much for Neil Lennon to ignore and Soro will get a place on the bench for better or worse.

McGregor: You don’t have a Celtic side without Callum in it, his experience and talent means he’s always one of the first names on the team sheet.

Turnbull: He’s done more than enough for a start and gives Celtic a massive threat from set pieces.

Moi: You could argue Mikey could take up the position but he’s only played four minutes of football this season to this point. Moi has been doing well and deserves to continue.

Frimpong: We think Ryan Christie will have been though of for this position but if he takes the role, he’ll be cutting infield and shooting on sight, running into traffic. You play Frimpongh and you get natural width without the onus on the youngster to defend.

Edouard: I’m of the opinion the striker needs to play through his poor spell and come out the other end. On his day, he’s deadly.
