Scott Brown: Illness

Scott Brown: Illness

Team news ahead of Sunday afternoon's SPL clash between Celtic and St Johnstone at Parkhead.

Celtic skipper Scott Brown is a doubt for the visit of the Saints on Sunday afternoon.

Brown missed the Champions League Group G win over Barcelona on Wednesday night with illness and has not recovered yet.

Right-back Mikael Lustig should recover from a hip knock but left-back Emilio Izaguirre (hamstring), stopper Thomas Rogne (calf), winger James Forrest (hamstring), and strikers Gary Hooper (hamstring) and Lassad (groin) are all still out.

Defender Callum Davidson and midfielder Paddy Cregg are nearing returns for St Johnstone, but Sunday's game may come too soon.

Davidson played for the under-20s side in midweek after a back problem, while Cregg returned to training this week following a hamstring injury.

Winger Peter Pawlett (hamstring) is also close to match action, but Craig Beattie (thigh) and Jamie Adams (back) are likely to be absent once again.
