Scott Brown is fit to make his international return when Scotland take on England despite limping off during Celtic’s victory on Saturday, according to reports.

The Daily Record claim Brown has declared himself fit for the crucial World Cup qualifier despite limping off during Celtic’s 3-0 victory against Inverness.

The 31-year-old turned up at Scotland’s international base in Renfrewshire on Sunday evening and brushed away fears his comeback would have to be delayed.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers voiced some concern after the match, revealing his skipper was forced off the pitch after seemingly suffering from a dead leg.

However, Brown is adamant he will feature for Scotland on Friday evening and hopes to start in midfield despite announcing his retirement from international football in August.

Rodgers warned the injury will need to be monitored by the medics over the coming days to make sure no serious damage was sustained but it seems Brown is eager to get on with things.

The Celtic skipper had been influential so far this season and has helped his side climb to the top of the Premiership table where they currently lead Aberdeen.

The Hoops are now 10 points clear at the top and have a commanding lead over their rivals Rangers who endured a disappointing 1-1 draw with Ross County on Sunday.
