Celtic interim manager Neil Lennon has some good news for the Celtic support ahead of Sunday’s Scottish Cup semi-final against Aberdeen.
He has revealed that the Hoops should have a full squad to choose from for the game.
“A few injury scares have settled down this week. We should have a full complement of players to pick from” he revealed to the club’s official Twitter account.

This is certainly some exciting news for the Celtic support. The Hoops haven’t been able to put out their strongest team for a long time due to a lengthy injury list.
That could be a reason why the team’s performances have been so disjointed in recent weeks. Now the big question will be who will Lennon choose to be in his starting line-up for the semi-final.
Few players guaranteed to start
Perhaps the only cast iron guarantees to be in the team are Scott Bain, Kieran Tierney, Scott Brown and Callum McGregor.
Every other spot in the side could be up for grab. Lennon has made numerous changes in the past few weeks and it could happen again in the semi-final.
Still, at least the players that are coming in are players who can do a job for the team. With a full side available the Hoops really should be strong enough to defeat the Dons. Hopefully for the fans’ sake they can put on a performance as well.
