Celtic fans aren’t convinced that Mikael Lustig is a better option than Jeremy Toljan at right-back despite Saturday’s Scottish Cup win over Hibernian.

The Swedish veteran was brought into the team at the German’s expense after an extended run on the bench in the final few games of Brendan Rodgers’ reign as Hoops boss.

Neil Lennon though clearly turned to a trusted former player, which is understandable, although it will be interesting to see if Lustig continues to get starts having not especially impressed against Hibs.

Some were pleased with his efforts, but many are also pointing to the deficiencies in his game compared to the Borussia Dortmund loanee.

Toljan has far more pace and is more comfortable trying to have an impact on the game in the final third, but it could be argued that Lustig offers more in our own half and from set-pieces.

Fans aren’t sure how Lennon will process but took to Twitter this weekend to discuss the issue…
