Celtic team news: Brown returns but Christie unavailable as club begin life without Rodgers

Celtic will begin life after Brendan Rodgers with a trip to Tynecastle on Wednesday night when they meet Heart of Midlothian in the Scottish Premiership.

The Bhoys moved quickly to bring Neil Lennon back to the club following their previous manager’s departure to Leicester City.

The Northern Irishman is understood to have taken the role until the end of the season and will look to guide Celtic to an unprecedented treble-treble.


And, according to a match preview by Sky Sports, he will be able to call upon a key player for their trip to Edinburgh.

Scott Brown is available for The Hoops after serving his suspension and Lennon will likely look to put him straight into the side.

However, Ryan Christie has been ruled out of the contest after he picked up a hamstring injury in the win against Motherwell at the weekend.

The Verdict:

Celtic will want to ensure they do not suffer a hangover from Rodgers’ departure and Lennon could be the ideal man for the job.

The availability of Brown will be key for The Bhoys as they already have a number of injuries in the middle of the park they have to deal with.

Christie being unavailable will, however, come as a potentially big blow to The Hoops as he has been in fine form this season and has played a huge role in helping Celtic sit at the top of the Scottish Premiership table.
