I never suggested he doesn't pick his strongest team.

Lennon's like a crap SPL version of Mourinho I suppose. Never manages to stay at a club long enough for it to be worth his while developing the young lads.

Put simply; Celtic, like every other club, are going to do what is best for themselves and not to keep some lad on an Irish football forum happy!

Van Dijk and Wanyama - costly (by Celtic's standards) signings from abroad, were developed by other clubs, not Lennon.

McGregor - perfect example actually, was completely ignored by Lennon during his first spell at the club, didn't play a minute of first team football during his first season as a pro. Made his debut in Deila's first game just after Lennon quit in a huff, scored the winner and never looked back.

So no x 3, basically. Though McGregor a great example for Connell of what he might be able to achieve if he can just get away from Lennon somehow.

Sure if Connell was to make it at Celtic you could then say he was developed by another club too taking that attitude?
Wanyama was 19 when he joined Celtic and Connell 18

Plenty of young lads have been given a go under Lennon. If Connell is good enough he will get a chance, as Frimpong has shown. He is 19 years of age with a handful of games for a basket case club and you think he should be getting a start in a midfield where he is about seventh choice and, I would suspect, he is aware of that and happy with it; for now at least.

McGregor was twenty when he went on loan at Notts County and had hardly a look in before it. He may have had a couple of run outs, I can't remember and it isn't important. Connell has time on his side and would be in the exact same position regardless of who the Celtic manager is. 

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Its more difficult to be given a chance at celtic than it would be at pretty much all other teams in the spl 

If Connell is not going to get the opportunity to show what he can do with regards to first team football at Celtic, they should give him a loan more where he can built up that experience.

I would say it is very likely that he will. Lennon is probably waiting to see what plays out in the transfer window first.
