CALLUM McGREGOR will captain Celtic in the friendly against Paris Saint-Germain tonight.

Scott Brown was not included in Neil Lennon’s 24-man squad for the encounter at the Parc des Princes in their third and final warm-up game in their French tour.

The 35-year-old midfielder is thought to have sustained an injury in the 2-1 loss in Lyon on Saturday evening.

Odsonne Edouard will lead the line against his former club while keeper Scott Bain, as expected, will start against Neymar and Co, who have rattled in 16 goals in their previous two matches as they prepare for Friday’s French Cup Final against St Etienne.

The Hoops kicked off their trip across the channel with a 1-1 draw with Nice last Thursday.

STARTING LINE-UP: Bain; Frimpong, Jullien, Ajer, Taylor; Ntcham, Bitton, McGregor, Christie, Elyounoussi; Edouard. Subs: Hazard,Doohan, Klimala, Soro, Rogic, Bolingoli, Connell, Robertson, Forrest, Henderson, McInroy, Welsh and Dembele.
