Celtic have by far the strongest squad in Scotland, and this will be demonstrated by who is likely to be on the sidelines for the Bhoys in their Scottish Cup semi-final clash against Rangers.
For any other team in Scotland, the trio of Patrick Roberts, Leigh Griffiths and Scottish player of the year Scott Sinclair would be first-team starters, but for Brendan Rodgers’ side they could be on the bench at Hampden Park.
The good thing about having such a strong squad, is that the above named players have the ability to come on and change the game in an instant.
Just look at the Hoops’ winning goal in their recent match against Hamilton as an example. A pinpoint Griffiths cross was headed home by Griffiths who had been on the pitch for less than 60 seconds. That is what those players can do if given the chance.
The Hoops boss will of course be confident that the players that he picks to start the match for the Bhoys are more than capable of doing the job to help the Bhoys reach the Scottish Cup Final.
But Rodgers knows that on the bench he has a battalion of players who could come and change the game at a moment’s notice, and that could be the key to victory at Hampden Park.
In other Celtic news, the Hoops should look to sign this pacey forward in the summer
