I am sure that Neil Lennon will be assured a warm return to Celtic Park this afternoon.

There are also a few of the Hibs players who have connections to Celtic but you can guarantee that won’t mean a thing once a ball is kicked.

In many ways they will see it as a prelude to the semi-final next month at Hampden and you can bet your bottom dollar that Lennon would love to be the guy whose team burst Celtic’s bubble.

I suspect there will be a few changes made to the team that played Anderlecht. Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong are obviously out with injuries but I suspect that after the game at Ibrox and then the win in Brussels, that they will not be the only changes.

However, what you can say with Celtic is that even when the team is changed around there doesn’t seem to be much alteration in the hunger to go out and keep the results coming.
