Kuhn, Yang or Jamesy – Brendan’s Welcome Easter Sunday Dilemma

A welcome dilemma for Easter Sunday for the Celtic manager…

Nicolas Kuhn has been in superb form these past couple of games and is starting to look well worth the £3 million fee that the club parted with to sign him from Rapid Vienna. Despite a ropey start, the German has since come on to a game and looks a very promising player.

His good form coincidentally was only brought to the fore due to the suspension of another wide player who was starting to prove his worth. That man of course is Yang, and the South Korean is now free to play after serving a two match suspension after his debatable red card at Tynecastle earlier this month.

Yang was starting to show why he is so highly rated before he was unfortunately ordered off in that game at Tynecastle, a game which he was looking like our most productive player.

With Yang now available for the trip to Livingston, it’s a dilemma for Brendan Rodgers, but a welcome one at that. Daizen Maeda is a cert to start on the left hand side, so it should be a straight choice between Kuhn and Yang for the right hand side spot.

And don’t forget that Brendan will also be mindful of the impact ‘super-sub’ James Forrest has made over the past few matches. He’ll undoubtedly be on the bench and called upon if needed on Sunday.

It might be a head scratcher for Brendan, but it’s one to that’s most welcome as it only makes us stronger as a squad.
