    As a coach he is exceptional at improving players, he does set up a team fragile defensively though. It was also apparent we needed rid of Gordon for a long, long time.

    This. Without assuming that you agree, there's no doubt in my mind that he's the best coach we've had in my time watching Celtic. (I say coach advisedly; the best manager was MON).

    I really rate both Lenny and Ronny as coaches developing players, but there's no doubt Brendan took it up a couple of notches.

    100%.

    Think Brendan says that himself, it’s his biggest positive, he is * exceptional at it.

    In the Semi Final he nearly scored with a run from the halfway line, could have had a hat-trick.
    Something has changed for him, we got to put it down to Lenny....

    Has looked so solid recently, which is great. But history tells us that he'll either do something rash and lose his confidence, or he'll get himself injured.

    What I've liked about his performances recently are that he's been really effective at starting attacks from defence, whereas we've been guilty too often of just moving it side-to-side too slowly. We saw him bringint the ball out of defence and moving into midfield a lot vs Aberdeen. But I've also noticed him firing it into peoples feet when the opportunity is there and that's sometimes taking 3/4 players out of the game. He did that quite a few times for Rogic against Killie.

    amazing hes still only 24

    impressed with the way hes taken his chance showing us why we bought him in the first place, hes only played around 150 games in 6 years

    whats with the not playing on artificial pitches is that a choice or is his knee permanently 70% or something

    He’s a player who plays well when confident and badly when he isn’t.

    His confidence is sky high now and he deserves it. Just hope he keeps going. That’s why it’s important that fans don’t get on a players back so quickly, something our fans are guilty of because we demand such high standards.

    We actually have a goalscoring CB now.

    When he smiles he oddly reminds me of Jackie Chan

    Fair play to him, he's been sensational of late..

    What a turnaround and again after scoring today, taking away the Cesar moment last week...he clearly showed how much it meant to him today..

    Was doing keepy uppies near the end coming out of defence :56:

    He seems to be a real confidence player and he certainly has it back. He is definitely worth keeping around next season. It has been a big turnaround from him and that is certainly a point in Lenny's favour.

    He’s scored a couple of goals and had a stormer at Hampden but we still need to go out and get a first choice CB to partner Ajer next season.

    The amount of chances were given the opposition is mental.

    Anyone other than Wilson and we’d have conceded 2 or 3 today.

    A lot of our defensive weaknesses came from the full-back positions today though. I am seriously worried about KT. He was nowhere near fit today, it must be doing him damage. Himself and Lustig were both getting forward and not getting back.

    There is no doubt we need at least one central defender to come in,but I think Jozo deserves at least a fair chance to stay and stake his claim. A month ago I would have him down as one of the first out the door, but he has shown that there is a player there.
    Consistency is his big danger. When his confidence drops he becomes incredibly erratic, but he deserves some credit for his performances under Lennon.

    I think it's quite clear there was a problem between him and Rodgers. His whole personality seems to have excelled since Lennon has come in, he just looks so happy.
