Both Scott Sinclair and Marian Shved were absent from Thursday’s 2-0 win over AIK, and the Celtic fans can’t understand why they’ve been dropped.
The two wide-men sat out the Europa League play-off win over the Swedes as Neil Lennon preferred other options in his matchday squad. Despite their snub, the Celts managed to secure a two-goal advantage, thanks to second-half strikes from James Forrest and Odsonne Edouard.
Lennon opted for Forrest and Mikey Johnston in the starting XI, which is certainly understandable, but with Lewis Morgan and Jonny Hayes preferred on the bench to the missing duo.
The fact that Morgan and Hayes, two players yet to spark their Parkhead careers into life, were chosen ahead of Shved and Sinclair, has got the fans irate.
The greatest player ever to grace the Scottish Premiership is revealed in the video below…
Shved is an intriguing signing that the fans want to see more of after an encouraging cameo against Nomme Kalju. While Sinclair is a fan-favourite and consistent contributor to goals, with his record at Celtic Park speaking for itself.
Here’s how the fans reacted to the duo being omitted from the AIK matchday squad:
It’s not as shocking as no Sinclair

Sinclair and Shved should be on the bench before Hayes morgan and Bayo on evidence. Can understand hayes covers a few positions.

Or the manager is an idiot. Neither of them are remotely close to Sinclair but still play ahead of him.

Either that or lennon been lennon just won’t pick him.. Sinclair hardly behind Morgan but yet lennon thinks so

Surely Lennon needs to come out and give us answers regarding Sinclair and Shved. Morgan is not a better footballer than either of them.

Agree wholeheartedly why is Sinclair not even in the bench or shved it’s worrying he must see something in training we don’t or he is just a bitter little man over something

Subs bench is embarrassingly weak – no excuse for them not at least being there
