SCOTT BROWN was part of the side who only managed a frustrating draw against Aberdeen at the weekend.
After two big results in the capital, the bhoys fell flat at Celtic Park against a well organised Aberdeen side who were defending in numbers.
Celtic’s injury crisis hasn’t been deemed as big a crisis as maybe it should be because the players who were fit managed to get results. However, the bhoys are missing a whole squad through injury and it finally caught up to them at Celtic Park on Saturday.
Not having the likes of Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor, Olivier Ntcham and Ryan Christie to call upon to give us that little spark meant we played out a 0-0 draw.
Speaking about Callum McGregor in particular, Broony believes not having the midfielder on the field has been a huge blow for the team – branding Callum exceptional and we’d have to agree.
“I think any player would miss having Callum in there,” Brown told the Evening Times.
“He has been exceptional for us over the last two or three seasons.
“His work rate is phenomenal and he just gives us so much in terms of being able to pick out a pass or score a few goals himself. He is a quality player and getting him back into the team should give everyone a bit of a lift.”
Neil Lennon confirmed over the weekend that Callum should be back in training this week but no word if he will make the Dundee game on Sunday. There’s every chance the midfielder will be able to play in the Glasgow Derby at the end of the month along with Tom Rogic.
