Neil Lennon has admitted that some of his ‘old guard’ could be back in the Celtic side for next week’s Scottish Cup Final against Hearts.

The hoops boss has made dramatic changes to his side over the last two games and been rewarded with a return to winning ways against Lille and Kilmarnock

Scott Brown has sat out the last two matches as Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull were given their chance to impress in midfield.

Tom Rogic has come on as a substitute in the last two matches with Ryan Christie, suspended against Lille, making an appearance midway through the second half today.

Looking towards next week’s side to face Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final, Lennon told BBC Scotland:

I think I should show a bit of loyalty to the boys who have been there, done that, got us there. It’s an important game to finish off last season and it’s a game we want to win.

Lennon now has the luxury of having a full week to prepare for the clash with Hearts at Hampden.

Yesterday Robbie Nielson’s side beat Queen of the South 6-1 at home as they look for revenge on losing last season’s final to Celtic.
