Neil Lennon has a massive decision to make when it comes to James Forrest and Tom Rogic on Sunday.

One man is still returning from long-term injury while the other is blowing hot and cold.

As has been continually drummed, every decision must be the correct one as the season is on the line.


Perhaps the Irishman will go for a change of heart to surprise Derek McInnes at Hampden Park.

James Forrest not firing enough

He was arguably number one candidate for player of the season in the first half of the campaign.

Forrest was scoring barrel loads for the Hoops and Scotland and people were taking notice of him again.

Since then, a few sparks aside, the 27-year-old hasn’t really lived to up to early reputation.

Yes, he scored and assisted against Rangers in the crunch clash at Parkhead, but the two games that followed he wasn’t to be seen.

Players must be consistent at Celtic and Forrest isn’t being that at the moment.

He is experienced and has scored cup-winning goals for the Hoops before but we are talking about the here and now.

Perhaps a young and hungry Timothy Weah with a point to prove will be in his place when it comes round to Sunday?

Tom Rogic not got the legs for Aberdeen

It’s probably more unfair on the Australian than Forrest if he is judged on present form.

However, we all know that we must play our best team and with those who are 100% fit.

Unfortunately, Rogic still looks off the pace and someone in his position will be key for Celtic.

The Hoops are slow getting it from the defence to the midfield, so Rogic needs to be the quicker link to the attack.

This will require a lot of running which Rogic isn’t quite ready to do as has been shown in his previous matches.

Instead, Callum McGregor or Ryan Christie is probably Celtic’s best choice in that area.

However, don’t be surprised if he is introduced towards the end of the match with things aren’t going to plan.
