Could this be Neil Lennon’s final match in charge of Celtic? Quite possibly.
Although he received the backing of the board after their 2-2 draw with Hibernian, they have now suffered three defeats in a row to Sparta Prague, Ross County and AC Milan.
In the process, ten goals have been shipped in what has been a disastrous period for the Hoops.
Time, therefore, is surely running thin on the ground for their manager.
A match against St Johnstone should be a Celtic win if things follow the script, but as we know, it has merely been torn to shreds in 2020/21.
Nonetheless, here’s the team we’re predicting Lennon to go with.
We’re tipping the Bhoys to make two changes from that side that were hammered by Milan just a matter of days ago.
Vasilis Barkas was hopeless between the sticks and as a result, Scott Bain comes back in to play in goal.
A further change is at centre-half where the £5.4m-rated Christopher Jullien replaces Nir Bitton at centre-half. Diego Laxalt and Hatem Elhamed keep their places at full-back which means Jeremie Frimpong gets another opportunity further forward on the wing.
Lennon singled him out for praise in that role on Thursday so deserves more chances to demonstrate what he’s capable of in the final third. The boss issued the following three-word statement at full-time on Thursday: “Frimpong looked outstanding.”
Tom Rogic scored in midweek so plays ahead of Olivier Ntcham in central attacking midfielder. Mo Elyounoussi has been ruled out for a few weeks so there is no place for him in the side. Defender Shane Duffy is also a doubt.
