Celtic skipper Scott Brown will be available to face Rangers in the Scottish Cup semi-final at the weekend.

That follows the champions planning to lodge an appeal over his late sending-off in the 2-2 draw at Ross County on Sunday.

Brown was dismissed for his challenge on Liam Boyce and would normally receive a two-match suspension.

Manager Brendan Rodgers had earlier told BBC Scotland: “Scotty has gone in and caught the boy late, but I’d have to see it again. Scott has been brilliant this season. He’s never once made a challenge like that.

“In his defence, the referee was letting a lot go on him,” he added. “But that was the referee’s making. It was a poor end to the game.”
