I’ve loved the coverage Jack Hendry and Kris Ajer received for their international appearances over the break. The situation in central defence is fluid, with Jozo Simunovic, Dedryck Boyata and (on loan) Erik Sviatchenko each with questions to answer, Jack and Kris have to be considered as having an equal chance of starting the Scottish Cup semi-final.
The thing I’m most looking forward to is seeing Marvin Compper fully fit. There can be no doubt that Brendan sees Marvin as a crucial element in developing younger players around him, in particular with an eye on the Champions League qualifiers.
Saturday’s home game against Ross County is a perfect opportunity to give Marvin a start, while resting one of the international travellers. Let’s hope he plays.
