Neil Lennon has agreed with the notion that playing with both strikers can help Odsonne Edouard become more prolific in future matches.
The Celtic manager couldn’t hide his delight when new Bhoy Albian Ajeti managed to bag his first goal for the Scottish Champions and also the club’s winning goal.
The Swiss international came into the game in the second half, with the manager and his coaching staff switching to a formation utilising both forwards.
With Ajeti coming on, it allowed the rest of the squad to breakdown the Dundee United defense and Ajeti managed to even create the flow of play that lead to his own goal.
“We wanted to get two strikers on so we re-jigged it to see if we could get something out of it.
“I think it suits Odsonne Edouard at times.
“The good thing is that we can be flexible with it. We have the personnel to do it and sometimes it works for you and sometimes it doesn’t.
“I’m not saying I’m a tactical genius, it’s sometimes just common sense that comes into your thinking to get guys onto the pitch.”
Lennon knows that Celtic are much more of a threat going forward when there are two strikers on the pitch, Ajeti looks good and he’s not even fully fit.
The Celtic gaffer must focus on bringing the Swiss striker upto date in training that would allow him to play along with Edouard, at the very least it’s got to be Edouard and Klimala to lead the attack against Hungarian champions Ferencvaros.
