Celtic's Mark Brown heading for Kilmarnock
Celtic back-up goalkeeper Mark Brown is set to move on loan to Kilmarnock in a transfer deadline day deal, filling the gap left by injured goalie Alan Combe.
Celtic back-up goalkeeper Mark Brown is set to move to Kilmarnock in a transfer deadline day loan deal until January, subject to clearance.
Brown will fill the void left by injured first choice Alan Combe, who is facing a near three month stint on the sidelines as a result of a forthcoming hip operation.
28-year-old Brown started his career at Rangers, before spending a season at Motherwell. A move to Inverness Caledonian Thistle established him as a top-flight 'keeper, spending five years at the club before earning a move to Parkhead in January 2007.
He has found first team opportunities hard to come by at the SPL runners-up, making a handful of appearances in his two and a half years at the club. The arrival of Lukasz Zaluska over the summer pushed him further down the pecking order for the new season.
If the move is completed in time, Brown should go straight into the squad for Killie's trip to take on Hearts on 12 September.
His competition for the number one jersey includes former Rangers young goalkeeper Lee Robinson and Cameron Bell.
