Celtic players stand by Tonev - Brown

Celtic captain Scott Brown backs team-mate Aleksandar Tonev, who denies racially abusing Aberdeen's Shay Logan, adding all of the players in the dressing room believe the Bulgarian winger, while the manager Ronny Deila says he needs his players 100% ready to play.

Tonev was found guilty of "excessive misconduct" by the Scottish Football Association following an incident in Celtic's 2-1 win over Aberdeen in September but the Glasgow side have lodged an appeal against the decision.
