SCOTT BROWN will see a specialist with his Achilles problem, but he is confident he will be passed fit to face Linfield on Friday.
The midfielder limped off just half an hour into Saturday’s 9-0 friendly win at Shamrock Rovers.
But he expects to face Northern Irish champions Linfield in the opening Champions League qualifier at Windsor Park after receiving treatment.
Meanwhile, Celtic are understood to be closing in on the signing of Manchester City midfielder Olivier Ntcham.
The 21-year-old has been in Glasgow for talks over the weekend and is believed to be close to finalising a deal.
