Scottish Cup Final
Winger Oliver Burke has been named as doubtful ahead of the Scottish Cup final this Saturday following a knee injury. Speaking ahead of the game, as reported by Sky Sports, Hoops boss Neil Lennon broke the unfortunate news and confirmed that the player will be monitored prior to the match.
The 22-year-old has enjoyed a mixed campaign on loan in Scotland scoring four goals in 11 appearances since his arrival in January.
The league winners will have the chance to secure the treble Treble this weekend, having already claimed the title and the Scottish League Cup.
Burke would be a great addition to the starting XI should he overcome his injury with the player on form, young and looking to grab the headlines on the big stage.
But if he is forced to the sidelines, it will be down to Neil Lennon to decide who to field in order to get the better of Hearts.
It could hand an opportunity to youngster Karamoko Dembele, who was handed his first-team debut last weekend against Craig Levein’s side.
Celtic would be buying into Burke’s potential, knowing that he still has plenty of room to develop into. Burke is a player that has been tipped to achieve big things in the game from a young age.
