SCOTT BROWN was today given the green light to face HJK Helsinki tomorrow night.
The Celtic skipper flew out to Finland with the rest of the squad this morning.
And, though he may require a pain-killing injection into his hip to allow him to face the Finns in the second leg of their Champions League qualifier, Hoops assistant boss Johan Mjallby indicated it is all systems go for the influential midfielder and reported the chances of him playing are "very good".
Brown sat out the weekend win over Aberdeen after aggravating the hip disc degeneration problem in the 2-1 first-leg win last Wednesday.
James Forrest was another absentee for that match.
But, as the squad prepared to board the flight to Helsinki, Mjallby confirmed: "Everyone is travelling, except Mo Bangura, who has a thigh strain.
"We have to assess a few of the boys after training tonight. Brown and Forrest missed the game at the weekend, but we're delighted they are with us now.
"The physios and the doctors will do their best to make sure they are available."
Mjallby is optimistic Celtic can extend their advantage in Helsinki but said: "We need to be solid. We can't make the same mistake we did a week ago when we conceded a goal on the counter-attack."
