It is getting down to the business end of the season in Scotland. Celtic are gearing up for the final straight, pushing towards green and white ribbons getting tied to two more trophies.
In a season that has seen the Celtic squad ravaged with injuries, it is welcome news that both Callum McGregor & Filip Benkovic are back in contention to face Dundee at Den’s Park tomorrow.
The back four has coped pretty well in Benkovic’s absence, big Kris Ajer has manned the back perfectly with Boyata. Some felt Ajer was the man of the match against Aberdeen last week.
The midfield position has struggled through. Nir Bitton and Euan Henderson have been absent from first-team football all season. They have done a good job stepping in when called upon but the energy of McGregor & Christie has been missing. Celtic have also been without the wizardry of Tom Rogic since December. Rogic is reported to be close to a return with Christie not far behind the Australian.
The addition of McGregor & Benkovic being available for selection will be a welcome one for Neil Lennon. Celtic have the possibility of making more history this season and they will need every available weapon in their arsenal to pull it off.
