Celtic boss thrilled with midfield options in possible Brown absence

Celtic captain Scott Brown is still in danger of missing tonight’s Champions League encounter with Barcelona.

Celtic captain Scott Brown is still in danger of missing tonight’s Champions League encounter with Barcelona.

The midfielder returned home early from international duty with Scotland last week after aggravating his problematic hip against Wales and is no certain starter for the trip to the Nou Camp.

Brown had an injection last week to try and calm the injury but if he is not fit, manager Neil Lennon suggests there are a few talented midfielders who could return to the line-up from the team that beat Spartak Moscow 3-2 three weeks ago.

“For what we will have to do in this game, Broony would be perfect for that,” he said.

“But we also have Joe Ledley, Beram Kayal and James Forrest who could come in from the Spartak side and they’re all fit, so we have good options.”
