Supporters of Celtic have recently reacted to a claim regarding midfielder Scott Brown and defender Shane Duffy which was shared on Twitter.

On Wednesday evening, the Hoops host Ross County at Celtic Park in a 6pm kick-off in the Premiership (per Transfermarkt).

However, a recent update from the sports editor at Radio Clyde Alison Conroy revealed that Neil Lennon could be without the two first-team regulars.

The reporter stated that both Brown and Duffy are ‘doubts‘ for the visit of Ross County because they picked up injuries in the Scottish Cup final on Sunday.

Lots of supporters then flocked to this to air their thoughts about the update on the players.

So far this season, Duffy has made 10 appearances for the Bhoys in the Premiership and earned an impressive 7.35/10 average rating, making him the third-best performer in Celtic’s squad.

Brown, however, has been considerably worse over his 14 appearances in the league as he has earned a 6.82/10 average rating and only been the Hoops’ 13th-best performer.

As can be seen in these responses from Celtic fans, lots of them seemed delighted that both Duffy and Brown could be out injured for the Hoops’ next match.
