    Arzani has played for the development squad. He should be available.

    Didn't look 100% against hibs and Hearts were out to hurt our players tonight, i can maybe understand Lennon leaving him out.

    Probably just resting Boli for Aberdeen. No need to play 3 games in a week, having just come back from injury, when we’ve Hayes and Taylor available.

    Elhamed probably just being eased back as we have Frimp and Bauer fit anyway.

    Johnston probably a niggle again but not sure. Expected him back at the weekend there.

    Sure Lenny said Elyounoussi will be out a little longer due to his previous injury flaring up.

    Cheers lads :50:

    Deffo makes sense with Boli leaving him out completely. Just wasn't sure if he'd picked up another injury..

    • Boli Bolingoli will make a timely return to the side though along with Mikey Johnston, although Mohammed Elyounoussi and Hatem Elhamed remain sidelines.

      “It’s doubtful if those two will make the 29th [against Rangers],” Lennon said. “Elhamed probably has a better chance than Elyounoussi.

      “We’re hoping if Elhamed doesn’t make St Mirren, he’ll be fit for the Rangers game, but he’s been out for a while now so it will be difficult for him.

      “We’ve got Jeremie (Frimpong) and we’ve got (Moritz) Bauer there as back-up too. We’re ok at centre-half too.

      “(Jozo) Simunovic is back on the grass now doing a bit as well, so hopefully we’ll see him back fully fit in the New Year and the squad will be looking stronger again.”

    As much as Frimpong has been great ,this next game against them is a battle... Elhamed for me but is a risk....big big decision .... absolute nightmare for Lenny .

    Frimpong was up for the battle last game against them and will be again.

    No point throwing in Elhamed when he’s not kicked a baw since November 7th.

    It's anything but a nightmare..

    If anything they didn't know what to do with him in the final before a bit if naivety crept in. He'll be wiser to it and we'll have the likes of Eddy who keeps bringing him in to play. Done it brilliantly against Livi and Hibs now for example..

    On our big slick pitch with the crowd behind him. I've got zero worries about him. Kent was pish against him and Morelos couldn't outmuscle him either..

    I kinda agree with you on this...just think Frimpong could be suspect against them defensively.

    I think Lenny will go with him...and I hope you're right.

    It's going to take Mikey a good few seasons to get his body adapted.. Still very young...

    What a player he's going to be tho.

    If need be....we'll outscore them..

    We have goals from all over. Frimpong and Forrest down the right. Boli and Mikey down the left. Eddy terrifying them up top. Christie and McGregor breaking with Broony putting out fires. Jullien winning everything in the box. Forster unbeatable..

    If we can't be confident with what we have at our disposal....on our run. On our home ground with 58 thousand behind us....then we might as well pack it in..

    Jerry was our best outfield player against the Huns, no worries about him for 29th.
    He will totally rip it up on that flank, Game changer Kunt will be chasing shadows all day.

    Absolutely no worries about Frimpong starting on the 29th, especially at Celtic Park

    Couple of times he's lost his marker which I'm not being critical btw....watch the Morelos header in the cup final for example.

    Ah, okay, fair enough.

    I would have no reservations starting him in the derby though. He is a nightmare for opposition defenders.
