Celtic should bring Scott Brown back in for the cup final with Aberdeen

Celtic host Aberdeen on Sunday afternoon in the Scottish League Cup final and Brendan Rodgers is vying to win his seventh trophy since he arrived at Parkhead.

The Bhoys dispatched of Hearts 3-0 in the October semi-final and Rodgers has a 100 per cent record in cup finals since he took over.

But the manager does have some big decisions to make with his team selection, so it will be interesting to see if he makes any chances from the team that beat Rosenborg away in the Europa League on Thursday.

Celtic captain Scott Brown returned from a knee injury against Rosenborg to complete a late second-half cameo and he he should be recalled against Aberdeen.

Celtic trio Tom Rogic, Callum McGregor and Ryan Christie have struck up a good understanding in the centre of the park during the captain’s month absence.

They have all thrived in central midfield role and been in good form, which is why leaving any of them out would be a harsh decision.

But Brown is a big-game player that will give Celtic a huge lift with his inclusion and unfortunately Christie should be used as an impact substitute.
