Lenny’s Left wing surprise for Cluj

NEIL LENNON has once again surprised us with his team selection for the Champions League third Round Qualifier against Cluj.

Scott Bain keeps his place ahead of Craig Gordon and will be relieved at that, while looking for a Big goalkeeping performance to impress his manager.

Both Bolingoli and Morgan who struggled last week in Romania drop out and it looks like it’s a back three with Ajer, Simunovic and Elhamed.

In the middle of the park Lenny is overloading talent with Brown, Ntcham, McGregor and Christie all starting.

The front three of James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Mikey Johnston will trouble the Romanian Champions.

On the bench are Gordon, Jullien, Bitton, Griffiths, Bayo, Morgan and Bolingoli.

The side might line-up like this…


Elhamed Ajer Simunovic

Christie Brown Ntcham McGregor

Forrest Edouard Johnston
