The former Scotland international was part of the team that played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester City in Glasgow on Matchday 2 in this season's Champions League and wants more of the same in their remaining two matches at home.

Barcelona and Borussia Monchengladbach are still to travel to Celtic Park and Brown admits it is vital they take points from those games to give themselves a chance of being in Europe in 2017.

“It is going to be hard for us because there are a lot of games in a short space of time but that is what happens when you are in the Champions League and in the semi-finals of cups,” said the 31-year-old.

”We just want to get as many points as we can but we know it is going to be two hard games. We need to do as well as we possibly can at home.”
