  • Neil Lennon: Bhoys can play their part in Scotland qualifiers

    Neil Lennon: Bhoys can play their part in Scotland qualifiers

    By: Joe Donnelly on 19 Mar, 2019 15:01

  • FIVE of Celtic’s first-team stars have been called up to the Scottish national side for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and San Marino this week. For Hoops boss Neil Lennon, each and every one of those players has earned the right to play on the international stage.

    Olly Burke, Kieran Tierney, James Forrest, Callum McGregor and Scott Bain have all travelled with the Scotland squad, and the manager picked out the latter three for specific praise.

    “I know Scott Bain well, I worked with him briefly at Hibs, and I’m a big fan of his. He’s also improved a lot since he’s come here, and he’s really grown into the jersey,” said Neil Lennon. “I’ll be delighted if he’s named as the No.1 at Scotland.

    “The last year has been meteoric for Scott. He’s got nice composure about him, he’s got good hands, he’s got great agility and he’s certainly playing very for me at the moment.

    “There have been a number of Celtic players that have contributed to the Scottish set-up in recent years. Jamesy has had a huge contribution in recent years, Callum McGregor too. Getting Cal some game-time at Scotland will probably benefit him as we’ve obviously got the Rangers game after the break. It’s been great to have him back.”

    Read the full and exclusive interview with Neil Lennon ONLY in this week's Celtic View. On sale from tomorrow, Wednesday, March 20.
