Celtic’s preparations for the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell on Saturday have taken a knock after Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers could be in danger of missing the game.
The Hoops boss made the revelation to the Bhoys’ official Twitter account, that the player would ‘hopefully be able to play in the showpiece match of the Scottish football season following a poor challenge by Aberdeen’s Andrew Shinnie.
🗣️ BR on Scott Brown after the skipper was on the receiving end of a bad challenge: “It was a bad tackle. It was late and right on the foot when the ball was well gone so hopefully he’ll be ok.”

Rodgers and the rest of the Hoops staff will need to wrap the player in cotton wool for the entire week leading up to the cup final, as it is vital that Brown makes it for the game.
The Hoops are nowhere near as effective a side without Brown in it, as he is the talisman that drives the Hoops forward, and he will be a key man in the middle of the park for the Bhoys, should he be fit to take on the Steelmen.
If the key Hoops player doesn’t make the game, Motherwell will take a massive boost from the news and they will believe that they can intimidate and bully the Celtic midfield if Brown is missing the game.
The Hoops dreams of a second successive domestic treble could rest on Brown’s availability for the game, and the sooner Rodgers confirms that Brown will be fit for the game the more the fans’ minds will be put at rest.
