Celtic manager Neil Lennon should select Timothy Weah against Kilmarnock this weekend

Timothy Weah has been used sparingly by Neil Lennon.

Celtic face Kilmarnock this weekend and Neil Lennon will hope to fix a recurring problem under his stewardship.

Lennon looks set to get Celtic over the line for the Scottish Premiership title but goals have been hard to come by.

In three of Lennon’s seven league matches in charge, Celtic have played out 0-0 draws. And against Dundee, the Bhoys required a 96th-minute winner.

Celtic have enjoyed a large amount of possession under Lennon but this has failed to translate into goals.

 

In order to fix this problem, Lennon needs to look at his squad options. And it is time to give Timothy Weah a starting role.

Many Celtic fans were calling for Weah in last weekend’s frustrating stalemate at Hibernian but the youngster was only introduced with five minutes left.

The 19-year-old has shown a lot of promise and he already has four goals to his name for Celtic.

But the PSG loanee needs to be given more minutes as Lennon has favoured other players such as semi-fit midfielder Tom Rogic and former outcast Jonny Hayes.

Either as a second striker behind Odsonne Edouard or as a winger, Weah needs to be on the pitch from the start.

This decision would be received warmly by Celtic fans, who rate the USA international highly. And it could help Lennon’s long-term ambitions of getting the full-time manager role.
