Neil Lennon has been given some advice when it comes to picking the future Celtic squad and I’m sure that we as fans agree with what Michael Stewart had to say regarding Scott Brown.
Neil Lennon got his team selection spot on during the week as Celtic defeated a very good Lille 3-2.
Although the Scottish Champions are out of Europe the win against the French club was vital in boosting the squad’s confidence and hopefully get us back on the winning track.
Neil Lennon gave a rare start to both Soro and Turnbull and both so-called fringe players gave it their all, both stars proved that they can hold down more first-team starts.
Another thing that became obvious during that win was the fact that Celtic are now playing much better without their club captain, Scott Brown.
Michael Stewart has urged Neil Lennon to drop Scott Brown and leave the skipper on the bench for the time being.
HE (SORO) BROUGHT REAL DYNAMISM TO THE MIDDLE OF THE PARK – LEGS, ENERGY, DESIRE.”
“WE CAN GO ROUND THE HOUSES AS MUCH AS WE WANT, SCOTT BROWN IS 35 YEARS OLD NOW – HE CANNOT PLAY EVERY SINGLE GAME.
“I KNOW FOLKS WILL SAY HE’S NOT PLAYED EVERY GAME, BUT THE POINT IS THAT IT NEEDS TO BE TAILORED AS TO WHAT SCOTT’S GOING TO PLAY TO HAVE THE IMPACT THAT WE KNOW HE CAN, RATHER THAN DILUTING OR SPREADING HIM TOO THIN, AND THEN HE DOESN’T HAVE THE INFLUENCE THAT YOU LOOK FOR.
“SORO HAS COME IN AND SHOWN YOU THAT HE’S CAPABLE OF HAVING THAT IMPACT THAT YOU NEED, AND FOR ME, TO BUILD A BIT OF MOMENTUM, HE’S GOT TO STAY IN THAT SIDE ON SUNDAY.”
There is nothing negative against Scott Brown and we are sure that he himself must know that he cannot play every game this season as the 35-year-old is getting close to the retirement age in football.
The club captain has been apart of a very successful club for a decade and we love Brown but for the good of the team, Soro and Turnbull must be regular starting players moving forward.
