Celtic have a great game coming up as they prepare to face Hearts in the Scottish Cup final on Sunday. Thanks to victories over Lille and Kilmarnock, the Hoops are back in winning form after a difficult 2019/20 season.
While they may have drastically slipped behind the Rangers in the Premiership, they have a good chance of clinching some titles and indeed the ‘triple triple’ with a win on Sunday.
Should Conor Hazard be Celtic’s new No. 1?
Neil Lennon will have a tough decision to make as he ponders his first team options. With his future at the club potentially in jeopardy, he has recently been risking some outside decisions, but they have been worth it. One man to start against Hearts is Conor Hazard, who has come up enormously at the plate in the last two games.
Conor Hazard must start against Hearts
With Scott Bain and Vasilis Barkas unable to impress the boss this season, Lennon has been forced to take desperate measures. The coach delivered back-to-back starts to Hazard, 22, who had only made one previous first-team appearance in 2017.
After their senior debut, many of the plug’s current and former teammates showered with praise for your achievement and praised their hard work.
However, he slid down the pecking order after making his first appearance. But back then he was just a teenager. Now, he’s had time to work hard both on and off the court and if he can help Celtic lift the cup on Sunday, he might be looking for a spot as Lennon’s first choice next season.
The Hoops will be furious that their summer signing of Barkas hasn’t paid off, but Hazard has swooped in and potentiality saved both the club and Lennon’s campaign.
