Scott Brown has a "very good" chance of being fit for the second-leg of Celtic's Champions League third qualifier against HJK Helsinki in Finland on Wednesday night, according to Hoops' assistant manager Johan Mjallby.

The Scottish champions are looking to defend their 2-1 lead from the first game at Parkhead last week. The Parkhead skipper's hip injury kept him out of the 1-0 Clydesdale Bank Premier League win over Aberdeen at weekend.

Mjallby said: "The Scott I know, I think the (chances of playing) are quite good - very good."
