Scott Brown delivers update on injury after Celtic win v Anderlecht

By Danny Wright

Scott Brown is hopeful that he hasn’t suffered a serious injury after he was forced off the pitch in Celtic’s 3-0 Champions League win against Anderlecht in Brussels on Wednesday night.

Brown, 32, has been in inspirational form for the Hoops this season and has arguably been their best player.

He was once again on form on Wednesday when goals from Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts and Scott Sinclair gave Brendan Rodgers’ side a stunning victory which improves their chances of keeping a spot in continental competition after Christmas.

However one big concern for fans was in the 70th minute when their captain appeared to have injured his hamstring.

Brown, speaking to BT Sport after their live coverage of the game on Wednesday night, is now aiming to be available for the Bhoys’ Premiership clash with Hibernian on Saturday.

When asked if his injury was bad, Brown replied: “Hopefully not. I’ll get it checked on tomorrow.”

The Hoops captain has been inspired this season, earning the plaudits from fans and pundits alike for his displays in the heart of midfield.

He has made 16 appearances across all competitions this term, starting all but one game he has been available to play in.

Celtic are now third in Group B, level on points with Bayern Munich after they were beaten 3-0 by Paris Saint-Germain.
