Team News

Scott Brown will face a late fitness test after being taken off at halftime in Celtic’s last pre-season fixture but is expected to be included in the matchday squad.

Linfield have a healthy squad to choose from.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“I believe my players could certainly rise to the occasion. We have no pressure on us. I hope there is a realism within our fans that we are playing a very good side. Celtic can dominate most teams in British football at the minute, so we know we are up against it.

But we are under no pressure. If we lose the game, we lose the game. Nobody is expecting us to win. As long as enjoy it and play to our maximum. If we do that, which we will need to, then we will see where it takes us.”

David Healy, Linfield.

“It’s going to be physical, it’s going to be a battle. They will want to make it a battle because of the way we play football and they’re going to try and stop us and close us down early doors.”

– Scott Brown, Celtic.
