@BhoysAnalytics: “First impressions are not very positive for Kennedy with this Celtic lineup. Looks like he was in on Lennon’s poor ideas as some had mentioned. Will really struggle for wide creativity I think. Aberdeen likely to stay narrow. Hopefully see some more intensity at least.”

@KierenLaverty: “Not impressed at all, Kennedy had a real change to show that he's different to Lennon, straight away has kept Brown in the team. Will see how the team plays but starting team isn't much different apart from Klimala up top.”

@Ginty1888: “This feels like the day we hammered Dundee 6-1 after Jock Brown left.”

@Gastro_Celtic: “Looking forward to seeing Eddy and Paddy up top! Would have liked Soro back in, but it is what it is... happy enough!”

@Jack_J_Jones: “I can only assume Barkas, Taylor and Johnston are injured. If so, fairly happy with that team though would rather Soro to Brown.”

@CeltExchange: “Couple of big calls in here already by JK. Interesting that he sticks with Brown over Soro. And very surprised that he gives Klimala a rare start!”

@MLickfall: “If Klimala puts a performance in here, Lennon made more of an a*** of it than we thought.”

@liamcsc: "Kennedy has picked a similar team to Lennon". Believe it or not, Neil Lennon was not some kind of dictator, there's a coaching team. Absolutely 0 will have changed in training, team selections etc”

@AidanSelik: “eh that’s. that’s eh. that’s actually quite good that aye.”
