As Celtic prepare to play their first official competitive match of the season against Linfield next week, they have stumbled upon another injury.
Playing against Shamrock Rovers of the Irish League of Ireland, it looks like captain Scott Brown has gone down injured.
As the time of Brown’s injury, the side were leading the hapless home side 4-0 in Dublin, but they will be left to sweat over the fitness of their hard-nosed midfielder, according to the Daily Record.
The article states that “the 32-year-old was replaced by Nir Bitton midway through the first half, trudging off because of an apparent foot injury.” This could be a big blow ahead of that tie to come next week.
Even without Brown, who would definitely be missed, the Hoops have to feel confident of getting a result. In fact, this could be a bit of a blessing in disguise as he has had some wild challenges in the past.
