‘Yassss’, ‘get him started’: Some Celtic fans react to Neil Lennon update on striker

A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to rejoice in Albian Ajeti’s return to fitness and availability for the Hoops ahead of today’s big derby.

On Friday, Celtic boss Neil Lennon confirmed at his pre-match press conference that the 23-year-old has trained the last couple of days, so he’s fit and available.

The news is particularly good when you consider that Odsonne Edouard hasn’t been able to train during his period of self-isolation.

The £19,000-a-week ace is “tired and isolated”, according to Lennon, who also admitted he hadn’t been able to train, so it remains to be seen whether he’d start today.

Ajeti, meanwhile, hasn’t featured since going off in the first half of the home win against Hibs on 27 September, but his timely return should see him back in the XI.

Needless to say, Celtic fans were pleased with the news and some made their feelings known on social media:

 

Celtic are just one point behind their opponents in the Premiership table, while also boasting a game in hand.

However, the build-up to the game has been difficult to say the least, with Lennon set to find himself with several players missing.

As well as Edouard being a doubt, Nir Bitton, Hatem Abd Elhamed and Ryan Christie have been ruled out of the derby due to self-isolation protocols.
