Brown - Up There With Best
Celtic captain Scott Brown believes the Hoops strength in depth will hold them in good stead as they face a 'huge' run-in until Christmas with domestic league and European matches.

Celtic captain Scott Brown believes the Hoops strength in depth will hold them in good stead as they face a 'huge' run-in until Christmas with domestic league and European matches.

Brown was speaking to Celtic TV as Neil Lennon's side look to put Kilmarnock to the sword at Celtic Park tomorrow to wrap up a positive week following their 1-1 draw with Rennes.

In response to being asked if the squad is as strong as it has been during his time at Celtic, Brown said: "It's definitely up there. We made some great signings in the last couple of days in the window.

"We have strengthened in positions the manager felt needed strengthened. We have a huge run-in until Christmas time until the next break for everyone.

"Everyone finds it hard after Europa League games to go again on Sunday but we have a huge squad and the manager will use it when he feels he needs to use it and we are looking forward to every single game.

"Kilmarnock have always been a hard team for us to play against and it's going to be no different on Sunday.

"It's about us maintaining our form which we have done since the defeat by Cluj."

Brown feels that Thursday night's display by the team in the draw with Rennes merited more than the point they took away from Brittany in their first group stage game in the Europa League.

"We were very, very good the way we played and pressed. The manager wanted us to go away from home and get something and we have managed to do that and we were maybe a little bit unlucky we didn't get three points," he said.

And in respect of the Romanian side, Brown is hoping that when they return to Celtic Park next month, the Hoops can avenge the defeat handed out to them in the Champions League third qualifying round back in August.

"We have a huge game at home against Cluj. We know how dangerous they can be on the counter-attack," he said.

"We didn't perform as well as we probably should have done against them and we now have time to put that right. We need to make sure we play a lot better.

"The group is tough, anyone can beat anyone. We have got to make sure we are on top form every single game.

"The point is a great confidence-builder but now we look to Sunday. We have a huge game against Kilmarnock and we need to make sure we continue on our winning way."
