Neil Lennon has a personnel conundrum this weekend as the debates whether to stick or twist between Ismaila Soro and Scott Brown for the Scottish Cup final.

Captain Brown has come in for some criticism in recent months for his performances while Soro has replaced him in the past two matches, which have resulted in victories against Lille and Kilmarnock.

Lennon hinted recently he would be willing to re-introduce his skipper into the starting lineup for this weekend's Hampden showdown, but some pundits and fans alike questioned why the Northern Irishman would tamper with a winning side - something the Hoops have not had too often this campaign.

Ex-Celtic striker Frank McAvennie is one who believes Soro should keep his place in the XI for the Hearts fixture. But the former West Ham hitman reckons Lennon won't be able to resist bringing in Brown for the big game. "I think if he's bringing in one at the weekend it'll just be one change, I would think," Macca said on Open Goal. 

"Scott Brown, I think, for Soro. I wouldn't change it, but Brown for Soro. It's a big call but [Lennon] hinted, hasn't he? There's no sentiment in the game, I would like to see the boys who have come in and done well, I think they deserve to play.

"Lenny said it last week, 'I might bring the big guns back', but they're not the big guns anymore. He's left Christie out and Scott Brown. Brown still has a big part to play at the club, I think, but it's one of them you can't bring him back just for the sake of it. It's worked well, at the moment [Kris] Ajer looks a different player at right-back as well."
