‘Will Do The Business’ ‘He Will Relish The Challenge’ Celtic Fans On Social Media Back 18 Year Old To Start League Cup Final

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has a selection decision at right-back for the League Cup final against Rangers this weekend. Hatem Abd Elhamed is a doubt for the game so the Hoops boss will likely choose between Moritz Bauer and Jeremie Frimpong.

The 18-year-old has been a revelation since making his debut against Partick Thistle in the Betfred Cup in September, and supporters on Twitter are backing the Dutchman to be handed a start at Hampden Park:

It would be a big call to start Frimpong, but Lennon’s decision to pick Bauer in the 2-1 win over Hamilton, and rest the teenager, on Wednesday night does suggest the young fullback is in line to play.

The Dutch Under 20 international has had a rapid rise to prominence following his move from Manchester City in the summer, but he has shown no signs of nerves when given his chance to play so Lennon may well hand him a start on Sunday.
