Ahead of Sunday's Scottish Premier League clash with St Mirren in Paisley, the Hoops boss gave an injury update at the club's Lennoxtown training complex.

He said: "Scott Brown had surgery in the break and so he is looking at a month, four to six weeks.

"Thomas Rogne has a hamstring strain and he will out for two to three weeks. James Forrest (back) is continuing his rehab at the minute.

"Joe Ledley didn't train today, due to a slight groin strain but will hopefully train tomorrow and Adam Matthews (hamstring) will train on Monday.

"Charlie Mulgrew is fine, he had a tight hamstring before the Serbia game and Gordon Strachan didn't take any chances with him obviously, but he came through training (on Friday) okay."
