    Is Julien just not fit?
    7mil for a lad to sit on the bench is a but much.

    Won't get fit if he's no playing..


    Bit good team....2-1 Celtic

    Doesn't have the pace out wide to mask his weakness in challenges. Mikey can skip away and beat a man for fun, whereas Morgan can't..

    Thus mob are big and physical..

    Should've gone with pace in Forrest switching or even Edouard dropping off and Griff up top..

    Simunovic is a worry as well as he's an utter donkey half the time..

    Johnson injures then I take it?

    I think Morgan is better than people give him credit for possibly would have started Shved instead though.

    That backline is a bit worrying they haven’t played together all that much

    Very good chance for Mogan to prove he has a future here imo. I actually agree with starting Simunovic over Jullien in this case.

    Shved isn’t a left winger so wouldn’t be starting there, hope Morgan has a good game

    CELTIC continue their European adventure tonight (Wednesday) as they take on CFR Cluj in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League third qualifying round tie.

    And for the game in Romania, Neil Lennon has made two changes from the side which thrashed St Johnstone 7-0 on Flag Day at Paradise last Saturday.

    Jozo Simunovic, who is serving a two-game domestic suspension, returns to the starting XI in the centre of defence in place of Nir Bitton, while Lewis Morgan comes in for Mikey Johnston. New Bhoy, Hatem Abd Elhamed, has recovered from a knock at the weekend to take his place in the team for his first European start for the Hoops.

    And Ryan Christie, with six goals to his name already this season – a hat-trick at the weekend, and three goals in Europe – will be looking to add to that tally tonight.

    Not surprised it’s Ajer and Jozo at CB seeing as they formed a partnership at the tail end of last season.

    Ajer and Jullien have never played CB together so it would be a bold move playing them vs Cluj away.

    Would rather Jillian but not too worried about Jozo he's prone to an error but usually solid hopefully looking to prove himself with jozo and Bitton in contention. I would even rather Sinclair start than Morgan but see how he gets on. He will have boli to link with and can cut in on his right so could work out well

    Makes sense for Jozo to play tonight given Jullien and Ajer haven't started together in a competitive match. But they should have by this point.
