(Sporting Alert) — Celtic welcome back captain Scott Brown to its starting line-up for tonight’s second leg of the UEFA Champions League qualifier against HJK Helsinki.

Also coming back into the starting team is Charlie Mulgrew, who returns to the side after serving his one-match ban.
Making way for the pair were Beram Kayal and Anthony Stokes, who have both been dropped to the bench.
Celtic take a slim 2-1 advantage into the game, following its win the opening game at Celtic Park in the first game.
Gary Hooper and Charlie Mulgrew were the scorers.
