Brown back for Hoops

Brown back for Hoops

Scott Brown is back in contention for Celtic’s William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final tie against Dundee United at Tannadice on Sunday.

The Hoops skipper has recovered from a groin strain although defender Mikael Lustig, who made his debut against Aberdeen last weekend, has a minor niggle which rules him out.

Midfielder Ki Sung-yueng and defenders Emilio Izaguirre and Efrain Juarez are back in contention after being rested last week following international duty.

Provisional squad: Forster, Cha, Rogne, Kelvin Wilson, Blackman, Wanyama, Ki, Izaguirre, Juarez, Brown, Forrest, Mulgrew, Ledley, Commons, McGeouch, Stokes, Hooper, Zaluska, Brozek, McCourt, Loovens.
