Fit-again Celtic trio in line to return for Bayern Munich game

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers expects to have three of his previously injured players, including skipper Scott Brown, back in time for the meeting with Bayern Munich.

Brendan Rodgers has revealed that three of his key players are expected to be back in time to play a part in Celtic's clash against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The Bhoys have faced an injury crisis of sorts after losing skipper Scott Brown and Stuart Armstrong prior to the international break, forcing them out of contention for the Scotland national side.

Jozo Simunovic has also been missing for the past fortnight due to a hamstring strain, meanwhile, but Rodgers hopes to have them back in his squad for the trip to the Allianz Arena next Wednesday.

"All three should train and hopefully be ready for Bayern Munich," he told reporters. "They'll join the squad tomorrow for training and maybe Saturday [against Dundee] is too soon for them but certainly Bayern Munich should be fine."

Rodgers was named Scottish Premiership Manager of the Month for September after guiding Celtic to three wins and a draw.
