  • Scott Brown returns to lead Bhoys against Bayern Munich

    Scott Brown returns to lead Bhoys against Bayern Munich

    By: Mark Henderson in Munich on 18 Oct, 2017 18:30

  • SCOTT Brown will take his place in the heart of the Celtic midfield tonight as the Hoops take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on matchday three of the UEFA Champions League.

    The captain returns from the injury he picked up towards the end of the previous European game, when Brendan Rodgers’ side won 3-0 against Anderlecht in Belgium. And he’s joined in the starting XI by fellow midfielder, Stuart Armstrong, who has also recovered from injury.

    With Jozo Simunovic ruled out, Mikael Lustig will partner Dedryck Boyata in central defence, which means a second start this season for Cristian Gamboa at right-back. And Craig Gordon returns between the sticks after being rested for last weekend’s 1-0 victory over Dundee.

    Both Celtic and Bayern Munich are on three points in Group B after two games, and tonight’s match in Germany is part one of a double-header, with the return game at Paradise on October 31.

    Kick-off at the Allianz Arena is 7.45pm (Celtic Park time). Head to @celticfc for all the pre-game build-up and live match updates.

    CELTIC (4-2-3-1): Gordon; Gamboa, Lustig, Boyata, Tierney; Ntcham, Brown; Roberts, Armstrong, Sinclair; Griffiths.
    Subs: De Vries, Bitton, Dembele, Rogic, McGregor, Forrest, Ajer.
