Tua Tagovailoa said his ankle is much better, but it won't be "100 percent" healed for Alabama's showdown against Oklahoma in the College Football playoff semifinal.

Alabama is the top seed in the College Football Playoff and will be facing No. 4 Oklahoma.

Brown is the only starter of the trio missing this week's game.

Celtic won the first Old Firm game of the season when they won 1-0 thanks to Olivier Ntcham's goal in the beginning of September. Of course, if the players don't do their job then they will soon hear about from the gaffer.
