Celtic boss Neil Lennon will be answering questions from the media ahead of the Hoops’ game against St Johnstone later on Tuesday.

It will be interesting as always to here from the Hoops boss ahead of yet another big game in the title race.

The situation currently looks good for the Hoops at the top of the league table, as Celtic have a five point lead, albeit Rangers have a game in hand.

With the transfer window closing in a matter of days though, there will still be issues for the manager to address.

Here are three questions we would ask the Hoops boss in the middle of yet another big week for the club:

1. Who is Celtic’s first-choice left-back?

Celtic’s left-back selection has been inconsistent over recent weeks. Greg Taylor played against Partick Thistle, but then Jonny Hayes replaced him in the side against both Kilmarnock and Ross County.

He didn’t have the greatest game against Ross County, as was pointed out by some Celtic fans on social media.

What we would like to know from the Hoops boss is will Taylor return to the side soon, or is the position Hayes  to lose? There is also Boli Bolingoli to take into account.

The Hoops really need to pick one player at left-back and stick with him to bring consistency to the team. It will be interesting to find out if Lennon plans to do this.


2. What is the latest on Jozo Simunovic’s future?

An unexpected story that emerged over the weekend was the news that Jozo Simunovic’s contract with the club expires at the end of the season.

The Hoops have an option to extend his deal for another year, and according to the Scottish Sun the player is set to have a meeting with the player, and Neil Lennon is keen to keep him at the club.

What we would like to know is when the meeting will take place, and will Simunovic’s injury issues have any bearing on if he gets a new contract or not.

3. Will any more players exit on loan?

There has been an exodus of players leaving Celtic on loan during the transfer window. The latest of depart the club temporarily are Jonathan Afolabi, to join Dunfermline, and Conor Hazard, who moved to Dundee.

They join the likes of Lee O’Connor, Eboue Kouassi and Jack Hendry, who have all left on loan during January.

What we would ask the Hoops boss is if any other players will exit in the last few days of the window, and how many of the players who have left would he consider to still have a future with the club?
