Celtic fans aren’t enjoying today’s team selection for the trip to Ibrox.
Neil Lennon has had to, or chosen to, make a number of changes to his regular starting eleven, with players such as Oliver Burke and Mikey Johnston coming into the side.
???? TEAM NEWS IS IN!! ????

It’s currently unknown whether the usually crucial James Forrest is injured or not but given he does not even feature on the bench the chances of that are pretty high.
With Kieran Tierney also unavailable, it looks like Jonny Hayes will be starting at left-back.
Rather worryingly there is no striker whatsoever on the bench, with Scott Sinclair the only real attack-minded player available to come on if things aren’t going very well against Steven Gerrard’s side.
It’s fair to say the team selection has gone down like a lead balloon with supporters, many not understanding the decision to play Burke or Johnston.
Hopefully though the players on the pitch can rise to the occasion and deliver a big performance to defeat our city rivals.
These fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts prior to kick-off…

2 right backs on the bench? Surely would have been better bringing in a striker from the reserves
