CELTIC skipper Scott Brown has declared himself fit for a sensational Scotland comeback against England in the World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday.
The Hoops midfielder, who has been in sensational form this season, limped off on the hour mark to be replaced by Nir Bitton in the 3-0 win over Inverness Caley Thistle at the weekend.
However, the 31-year-old powerhouse, who missed the three previous ties against Malta, Lithuania and Slovakia, is adamant he will be given the go-ahead to play against Gareth Southgate’s men in London.
Brendan Rodgers voiced some concern about Brown’s condition after the match, revealing his skipper was forced off the pitch with a numb foot.
But, while the Parkhead boss warned that the injury will need to be monitored by the medics over the coming days, the player is confident of making a full recovery in time to complete his international u-turn at Wembley.
Brown suffered a dead leg after taking a bang on his thigh against the rough-and-ready Highlanders who had Greg Tansey sent-off as the champions went 10 points clear of Aberdeen in their quest for a sixth successive title.
Fortunately, though, for Gordon Strachan it appears no serious damage has been sustained.
