Celtic should be calling on all their new signings to feature against Dunfermline.

The Bhoys host the Pars at Paradise on Saturday following their Champions League exit.

Neil Lennon‘s tactics and team selection is taking a lot of stick from the fans. The Irishman should be looking to freshen things up and get the newbies involved.

They have been steamrolling teams up until the shock defeat against Cluj on Tuesday.

Lennon will want to get his team back on the straight and narrow after a massive defeat. However, the manager should be calling on his new Bhoys to get game time at the weekend.

Not only will this help the transfers bed in more, but it will allow the fans to see more of them.

Additionally, a select few of the harder workers from Tuesday night deserve a rest before next Thursday.


Fans will expect to see expensive summer signing Christopher Jullien as well as young hot shots Marian Shved and Luca Connell.

These three players have barely featured, yet should fill in for Kristoffer Ajer, James Forrest and Ryan Christie.

Celtic signings can show what they are made of

One of the main criticisms from Tuesday was Lennon only playing one new signing. He left two others on the bench and didn’t even feature Shved in the squad at all.

Lennon is getting the chance to make amends by featuring most of his summer buys.

Jullien has had a couple of games but the jury is still out on him.

Shved looked promising in pre-season and even scored in the qualifiers against Nomme Kalju. However, the fans are yet to see properly the player from the Youtube compilations.

Lastly, Connell is the man everyone is forgetting since coming from Bolton Wanderers. He played a half against Rennes in pre-season but hasn’t popped up again.

Connell did play in the midweek Challenge Cup defeat with the Development Squad, though.

Perhaps now is the best time to bleed him into the first team squad.
