’85 minutes too late’ – Celtic fans annoyed that Neil Lennon kept Timothy Weah on the bench until late

Timothy Weah was brought on after 85 minutes.

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.
