Scott Brown expects to be fit for Hibs clash

Scott Brown expects to be fit for Hibs clash

Celtic have had a testing time of it recently, however, things could be about to get better for them in the imminent future.

The Bhoys have had a number of poor performances and results, which has led to a little unrest from the Parkhead faithful.

Brendan Rodgers’ own future has been up in the air, with regards to other clubs thought to have been sniffing around, whilst the fans appear to have become frustrated with how things are going under the former Liverpool manager.

Celtic will return to action in the Scottish Premiership after the international break and will meet Hibernian and former boss, Neil Lennon, as they look to get things back on track.

And, according to the Glasgow Evening Times, they could be able to have a key man make a return to the squad for the game at Celtic Park.

Scott Brown, once of Hibs, has revealed that he expects to be fit for the game after missing the last two matches with a hamstring strain.

“It was just a wee niggle and one of those which I’ve done before and ended up rupturing my hamstring,” he told the Glasgow Evening Times.

“It was more precautionary than anything else.

“Had I gone out and played I could have made it worse and ended up out for 10/12 weeks instead of a fortnight.”

The Verdict:

Celtic will be pleased to have their influential captain back available for the game against Hibernian, one they will no doubt want to win.

Brown has been a key player for the Bhoys ever since he arrived at the Hoops and his absence was felt against Red Bull Salzburg in the Europa League, although the club did manage to get by without him against St. Mirren.

Although it is still early in the season, if Celtic were to register a victory against the Edinburgh outfit, it could potentially change their season and finally get them back to their dominant selves.
