The Scottish Premiership may be a formality now for Celtic, yet rivals Aberdeen stand firmly blocking their path towards the trifecta of trebles. Indeed, Neil Lennon’s side face an era-defining game with the Dons this weekend as they aim to continue on their quest to win a stunning three trebles in a row, though the story of Scott Sinclair in Scotland looks to be over.
Out of form and favour, Lennon now has some big decisions to make when it comes to the team he’ll set up. Even respected fan website 67 Hail Hail believe he’s going to miss out, as his career with the Bhoys looks to be petering out. A sad end to a man who helped the Brendan Rodgers initially get off the ground.
So, who will get the nod?
While going with former Aberdeen man Johnny Hayes is predictably the safer option, the fans surely want to see the duo of Odsonne Edouard and Timothy Weah operating together.
Edouard’s been the Hoops real star this season after the departure of Moussa Dembele, leading their goal-scoring charts with 14 league goals. On the other hand, Weah’s only scored 3 goals but has looked in exciting rhythm in recent games and can really cap off what has been a decent loan spell with a big performance at Hampden Park. As a result, supporters must be intrigued to see these two young, skilfull attackers coexist in the same team.
Both players have that youthful vibrancy brimming in their game. They mirror a pacy, hungry demeanour going forward, often looking to get into the thick of things with clever movement and clinical work up front.
While it’s risky to field two youngsters together, it could be one to blow away the stubborn Aberdeen side. The two possess a dazzling panache which compliments one another. Why not give it a go? Lennon’s style of play hasn’t looked overly convincing since taking the reigns on an interim basis and pairing the two together can only be a good thing.
Celtic fans, do you think the Edouard-Weah combo can work against Aberdeen? Join the discussion by commenting below..
