Celtic appear to have shaken off their woeful two-month form following back-to-back wins ahead of the Scottish Cup final against Hearts this weekend.

The manager freshened things up for the Europa League dead-rubber clash against Lille, with the likes of Ismaila Soro and David Turnbull taking their chances in midfield.
Ajer recorded a solid 7.34 WhoScored rating in the 3-2 win last Thursday – making two interceptions and five clearances during the game. He kept his place in the team for the 2-0 win over Kilmarnock, and several Hoops supporters want Ajer to continue at right-back as a result.
Twitter channel @celtic_now asked their followers if Lennon should persist with the Norwegian at right-back. The post received plenty of interaction, with these fans giving their backing to the proposal.

Should have happened before now. Just one of the many frustrations this season so far (@GedCairns)
Twitter: @celtic_now Yes. Far better there than at centre half. Looked our best player at times when out there the past 2 games. (@cozzybruce1888)
Twitter: @celtic_now @BunbegB Definitely. ElHamed’s head is elsewhere and Frimpong isn’t a right back. A no brainer for me (@StephenT___)
Twitter: @celtic_now Yes, I’ve always said this is his best position, looks happier there (@CraigBarron20)
Twitter: @celtic_now For sure, he looks far more comfortable on the right side. (@Treksville)
Twitter: @celtic_now Defence starting to look like a unit again defo yes (@Tonyb19528846)
Twitter: @celtic_now Absolutely! He’s a very good right back (@rightback15)
