‘Omg’, ‘delighted’: Some Celtic fans react to Lennon decision in starting XI for tonight’s game

Celtic are in Europa League action tonight and if Neil Lennon’s to reduce the huge pressure he’s under, then the Hoops must deliver a great performance and get a good result.

Easier said than done, however, given the fixture is Sparta Prague away, the Czechs having beaten the Bhoys 4-1 at Parkhead earlier this month.

Celtic are in dire straits at present, sitting bottom of Group H on one point and, more worryingly, 11 points adrift of Rangers in the Premiership table, albeit with two games in hand.

That said, a positive result tonight would go some way towards boosting confidence ahead of Celtic’s Premiership meeting with struggling Ross County at Parkhead this Sunday.

Arguably the biggest news of the night in terms of the team selection is that defender Christopher Jullien is back from a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Frenchman returns to the starting XI in a back line also featuring Kristoffer Ajer, Diego Laxalt and Hatem Elhamed, in front of Scott Bain.

Callum McGregor and Scott Brown make up the midfield, while Ryan Christie, Olivier Ntcham and Mohamed Elyounoussi line up in front of Odsonne Edouard.


Here is what some fans have made of Lennon’s selection:
