Neil Lennon Delivers Positive Scott Brown Fitness Update But Reveals Bayo Might Require Surgery

Neil Lennon Delivers Positive Scott Brown Fitness Update But Reveals Bayo Might Require Surgery

Celtic boss has provided a positive fitness update on captain Scott Brown – but revealed striker Vakoun Bayo might require an operation.

The Hoops continued their excellent run of recent form with a comfortable 2-0 win over St Mirren on Wednesday evening, with the only negative being Brown being forced off with an injury during the second-half.

The ever-present Celtic skipper was replaced by Olivier Ntcham in the 69th minute, with Lennon revealing after the final whistle that he’s ‘tweaked’ a thigh muscle, but that his substitution was more of a precaution than anything else:

Celtic now face Hibs in the Betfred Cup semi-final on Saturday, before travelling to Rome for a Europa League re-match with Lazio next Thursday night.

How essential is it that Brown remains fit for both matches, as Celtic continue their assault for success on four fronts this season?
