Scott Brown has reassured Celtic fans that he is fit and well for the Betfred Cup semi-final against Hibs at Hampden.
The midfielder has started all 11 of Celtic’s SPFL matches this season but came off injured after 70 minutes of the midweek win over St Mirren.
When Brown goes down it’s usually something serious with fans concerned to see him leave the pitch even though the points seemed secure with Celtic 2-0 up.
Yesterday the four Betfed Cup captains were in front of the media at Hampden with Brown able to reassure Celtic supporters that he is fit and well as The Sun reports:
I’m okay. I came off as a precaution. I managed to train today, we did a cool down, went to the physios and everything is good.
Coming to Hampden for us is always a special occasion. It’s a special place for us and the last few times it’s been great performances as well, but we’ve got also got to dig deep.
Hibs give us a hard game a couple of weeks ago there and made it difficult for us to play out. We went a goal down early doors and they defended well, so we’re going to have to make sure we up our game for Saturday.
Although Brown is fit Celtic have a few absentees at Hampden with Leigh Griffiths, Mikey Johnston and Vakoun Bayo likely to miss out.
Brown played through the final weeks of last season with a broken bone in his foot with supporters and team-mates reassured to have the former Hibs man leading the team out at Hampden aiming for a fourth consecutive Betfred Cup win.
