Celtic captain Scott Brown has been passed fit to play against Barcelona tomorrow night in the Champions League.

Brown came off early against Rangers on Saturday in the 5-1 Old Firm derby victory and there were fears from the Celtic camp that he may miss the trip to Catalonia.

However, assistant manager Chris Davies confirmed in a pre-match briefing that Brown has shrugged off his knock and will be fit to face the Spanish champions.

The news comes as a boost to the current Scottish Premiership leaders, who are without main striker Leigh Griffiths for the Nou Camp clash due to a leg injury.
