Former Celtic captain Scott Brown will face his old club for the first time since his departure

Celtic travel north to face Aberdeen on Sunday in desperate need of a return to winning ways after their 4-0 humbling at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

The classy Bundesliga outfit proved too strong for the struggling Hoops at Parkhead as Ange Postecoglou’s side fell to their fifth defeat in eight games.

Celtic have failed to win away from home this season and the Australian head coach is now under increasing pressure to turn their fortunes around.

They will arrive at Pittodrie to face an Aberdeen team similarly out of form, having failed to record a win since seeing off Icelandic side Breidablik in the Europa League on August 12th.

Both clubs underwent massive squad rebuilds over the summer, with the Dons bringing in ten new additions, including former Celtic captain Scott Brown as a player/coach.

They have yet to make the impact manager Stephen Glass will have been searching for, but one thing that is guaranteed during tomorrow’s fixture will be the warm reception Brown is sure to receive from the Hoops supporters descending on the North East.

Josip Juranovic (hamstring), Greg Taylor (shoulder), James Forrest (calf), Mikey Johnston (knock) and Christopher Julien (knee) remain on the side lines.

Following defeat to St Mirren last Saturday, Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass threatened to make several changes to his starting line-up, but one player certainly won’t be included is long-term injury victim Andrew Considine.
