Celtic boss Neil Lennon is delighted with the state of his midfield ahead of tomorrow’s meeting with Rangers even if young gun James Forrest happens to miss.

The 20-year old as subbed off early in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Kilmarnock with hamstring tightness and could miss the visit of Old Firm rivals Rangers but Lennon is calm about his midfield stocks if the U21 ace is unavailable.

“We’ll see how he is after he gets some rest,” Lennon said.

“If we lose him we have plenty of good players to come in.

“We looked strong in midfield in the second half against Kilmarnock last weekend with Joe Ledley, Ki-Sung Yueng, Beram Kayal and Scott Brown, but we want James fit.”
