Rodgers must cut out what is plaguing his Celtic team as Old Firm derby looms

COMMENT

Celtic head to Hamilton on Sunday aiming for another three points that will take them one step closer to another league title, but the real story might well be the team selected for the match.

With the Old Firm Scottish Cup semi-final only a week away, Brendan Rodgers must cut out the unnecessary changes which have plagued his team selection at times this season, and select a team in mind to start both against Hamilton and in the semi-final.

Too many changes to the first-team side have disrupted the Hoops this season, and that could be one of the main reasons why the football played by Rodgers’ side this season is nowhere near the football played by them last season.

For example, there was no need to drop Kristoffer Ajer for the midweek match against Dundee, which lead to the partnership of Dedryck Boyata and Jack Hendry playing together, and the pair, who hadn’t played as a defensive  partnership before, struggled at times.

Rodgers must stop the changes as the season heads towards its’ climax. Injuries permitting, there is no reason not to play the strongest available side from the Hamilton game onwards, it makes sense.

It would be very annoying for Hoops fans if a selection blunder cost them the chance of a potential domestic treble, Rodgers can eliminate the prospect of that happening beginning against Hamilton.
