Scott Brown: Could return before the end of the season

Hoops manager Neil Lennon confirmed that Brown went under the knife during the international break, but he should be fit to return before the end of the season.

Lennon also revealed defender Thomas Rogne faces a spell out of action with a hamstring injury, while winger James Forrest is not yet ready to return as he continues to have treatment on a back ailment.

The Celtic boss said: "Scott Brown had surgery in the break and so he is looking at a month, four to six weeks.

"Thomas Rogne has a hamstring strain and he will out for two to three weeks, and James Forrest is continuing his rehab at the minute.

"Joe Ledley didn't train due to a slight groin strain but will hopefully train on Saturday and Adam Matthews (hamstring) will train on Monday.

"Charlie Mulgrew is fine, he had a tight hamstring before the Serbia game and Gordon Strachan didn't take any chances with him obviously, but he came through training okay."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
