Celtic to sweat on availability of Scott Brown

Celtic will be preparing for an away trip to Germany when they take on Red Bull Leipzig in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Bhoys rarely enjoy a fixture when they compete in Europe away from home and will need to be at their very best if they are to have any chance of coming away with a point or more from the Bundesliga outfit.

And, things could have been made more difficult for Brendan Rodgers’ side as they may have received an untimely injury blow to their chances.

Scott Brown had to leave the field in their 4-1 win against Hibernian at the weekend following a heavy challenge and his manager has revealed they still do not know the severity of the concern.

Speaking to CelticTV, he said: “We’re just awaiting the scan results from today. There a problem just below his knee at the top of his calf. We just have to wait and see on that.”

The Verdict:

Brown had recently only just returned to the side following another injury and will have been frustrated at picking up another knock.

The skipper is a vital player for the Bhoys and would have wanted to have been involved with their clash against Leipzig on Thursday, which is an important match for their hopes of progressing to the next stage of the competition.

It remains to be seen if he is available, however, should he be absent, it will be a huge blow to Rodgers and his team’s chances of getting a positive result.
