‘The team news is in’ – Lenny shuts down leaks, Ntcham and Izaguirre start

JOZO SIMUNOVIC has made it and starts against Hibs but there’s no place in the side for Kieran Tierney, presumably as Lenny manages his injury condition – we know it’s NOT your hip KT! Emilio Izaguirre starts, as he did at Easter Road in December when Rodgers played him as a wing back with a back 3 and Neil Lennon exploited that to get the win for Hibs.

Today Izzy will be in a back four.

And Lenny has sorted out the team-leaking situation – not a peep anywhere about this until the club released the team on social media.

Olivier Ntcham is back in the side with Tom Rogic, who replaced the injured Ryan Christie at Hampden starting on the bench today, alongside Oli Burke who has now recovered from his slight strain that kept him out of the semi-final.

So here’s the team, enjoy the game…COYBIG!
