Gloating Ibrox fans were all over a Tweet from Radio Clyde about Neil Lennon’s decision to play Vasilis Barkas in Saturday’s Glasgow Derby.

After sitting out six matches the former AEK Athens keeper was back in the Celtic side that defeated Dundee United 3-0. Managers like to talk about taking things ‘one game at a time’ but yesterday’s decision was clearly taken with Ibrox in mind.

Conor Hazard has made his debut, picked up a Scottish up winner’s medal but with the Derby in mind Lennon has opted for experience with Barkas handed the gloves after spells as understudy to Scott Bain and Hazard in recent months.

Celtic’s defence went through a nightmare spell from mid October to mid December with changes in players and formation but with a change to the midfield shape things have tightened up considerably but the loss of three goals to Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final is still fresh in the mind.

The focus is now on Barkas, a clean sheet on Saturday and his Celtic career is up and running, a home win and storm clouds return with the summer Recruitment again back in the spotlight.
