Celtic were held to a 0-0 draw against Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday. And many Bhoys fans were frustrated by Neil Lennon’s decision to keep Timothy Weah on the bench.
Weah was not handed a start but Celtic fans were expecting to see him introduced in the second half to help break the deadlock.
But Lennon waited until the 85th minute before bringing the USA international onto the field, by which point he hardly had a chance to influence the game.
Weah has scored four goals since joining on loan from Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window.
But his performances have been impressive and he has mainly been used as an impact substitute by Brendan Rodgers and Lennon.
Celtic fans were left questioning Lennon’s decision to start Jonny Hayes on the wing ahead of Weah.
And then the 19-year-old was snubbed when Lennon brought Tom Rogic and Scott Sinclair on during the second half.
Eventually, Weah replaced James Forrest but it was too little too late by that point. Here are some things Celtic fans said about Lennon’s selection choices.
85 minutes too late

Ooh Weah’s going to get 5 minutes…top stuff

Rank rotten substitutions – Rogic isn’t fit, Sinclair is a hollow jersey & Weah is on way too late to make an impact!
All moves are at walking pace with zero movement! Not at all good enough!

Perhaps if he had introduced Weah instead of Sinclair they might have won the game. If I were looking to inject confidence, enthusiasm and pace to try to win and looked at a bench with Timothy and Scott – the Englishman would not be my go to option.

Lennon will blow the league because he refuses to play the boys we brought in on loan and drops Sinclair who has been our top scorer the last season’s in the league, totally pathetic and people still want him as manager, we could go into the last game only 2 points in front
