Match day plan: Celtic - Celtic

Champions of Scotland! Again… It’s the same beautiful sight if you’re a Celtic fan. After dismantling Aberdeen 0-3 away from home, Neil Lennon would like to think that his job has been made that little bit easier for the last few games. However, with the final Old Firm of the season tomorrow, his team have one last fight they need to finish. 

Indeed, with the Championship in their hands there will be nothing more that those Celtic players would want to do than rub it in Rangers’ face just that little bit more. Travelling to the Ibrox as champions is already a joy, but just imagine taking all three points too. Now that would be dreamland!

Despite the dominance of last week, Lennon will be aware of a couple of players who just didn’t seem to fit into the system and struggled throughout the game, with that in mind, there are a couple of changes Lennon should look to make.

Drop Timothy Weah 

It hasn’t been the dream season Timothy Weah was hoping for, the 19-year-old attacker has only managed to start four times out of his 13 appearances for the Hoops this season, and last week against Aberdeen showed us just why.

Having only managed to score three goals in his time at Celtic this campaign, it is clear to see that maybe the Scottish Premiership is just too brutal for the young American.

Start Oliver Burke 

Having made more of a case for a starting place in the Celtic line-up than Weah, Oli Burke will be looking to cement his place for the last couple of games left this term. After coming on for his teammate Weah against Aberdeen he instantly showed an impact and gave a more direct approach to the Celtic attack.

With the Scottish Cup final coming at the end of the month, the 22-year-old, who is valued at £9 million (by Transfermarkt), will be keen to show his fight against Rangers on Sunday just to prove to his manager that even in the most gruelling derby in Scottish football, he can stand tall and make a difference.
