Celtic: Timothy Weah can destroy Hibs later today

Celtic: Timothy Weah can destroy Hibs later today - Celtic

After a dominant performance in the Scottish Cup last time out, Neil Lennon will be oozing confidence in his side as they take on Hibernian later today in the first game after the split of the Scottish Premiership. 

The 0-3 away win against Aberdeen last time out proved to everyone in Scottish football that Celtic just cannot be stopped as they cruised their way closer to the historic Treble-Treble.

With a journey over to Easter Road later today, Lennon will be well aware that changes are needed in order to keep his side fighting fresh and push for the celebrations to start. Against the team he was kind of sacked (yeah, no one really knows what happened) from earlier this season, it could be some rather sweet revenge.

Here’s a couple of changes the interim boss should look to make.

Drop Jonny Hayes 

After an impressive performance against Aberdeen and managing to bag himself an assist, it is clear that the age of Jonny Hayes is beginning to keep up with him, after having to be subbed off on the 75th minute.

Dripping with experience, Hayes has proven to be the perfect teacher and someone to follow for the younger generation of attacking players. Lennon will be well aware that if he does end up needing a cool head towards the end of the game, Hayes is the man to look to.

Start Timothy Weah 

Proving to be one of Celtic’s future stars, Weah has made an impressive start to his life at Celtic this season. With the end of the season approaching it is pivotal that Lennon begins to start the 19-year-old attacker and really allow him to put his presence on the game.

Having scored six goals in all competitions through what have mainly been cameo performances, there is no telling what the young American can do in the future and just how far in the game he can go.

But, he’s currently valued at £4.5 million (by Transfermarkt).

He certainly is an exciting player for Celtic’s future, and will show no end of improvement in the years to come.
