Celtic team news: Boyata available as Lennon prepares for return to Hibernian

Celtic will meet Hibernian at Easter Road on Saturday afternoon in their Scottish Cup quarter-final meeting.

The game will be the first time Neil Lennon has returned to his former club after leaving four weeks ago and he will now be looking to help his current employers keep their hopes of a treble-treble alive.


And, speaking ahead of the match in an interview, via the club’s official Twitter page, it appears he has had some great news to ensure the Bhoys have a chance of achieving that feat.


Lennon revealed that Dedryck Boyata is available for the game and will be ready to play after following a knock he picked up in the win against Heart of Midlothian in midweek.

The Northern Irishman, however, revealed that Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor and Ryan Christie all remain unavailable and will be absent for at least a few more weeks.

The Verdict:

The news that Boyata is available and ready to play for Celtic against Hibs will have come as a timely boost for the club and Lennon.

The Belgium international has been a key figure for the Hoops, despite the concerns surrounding his future at the club.

With potential sub-plots a possibility, Lennon will want to ensure his current club are at their very best and come away with a place in the Scottish Cup semi-final.
