The Celtic coach has joked about the determination of the club's skipper.
The Bhoys skipper has been an essential part of the club's success this term and, with two games left, Kennedy says Brown would not even entertain the idea of being rested.
Indeed, asked about the captain, Kennedy said his reaction wouldn't be ideal to being offered the chance of a rest.
JK: "A guy like Scott Brown, ask him if he wants to miss a game and he'd probably slap you in the face. He wants to play every game."— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) May 14, 2015
And Johansen has earned the rest, according to the Celtic coach. Kennedy praised the Norwegian's 'terrific' ability and form, suggesting the amount of games he has played this season only makes it logical for him to miss out one or two.
JK on Stefan Johansen: "It's his first full season and I think we've played roughly 70 games, including pre-season."— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) May 14, 2015
Kennedy also spoke of Charlie Mulgrew, meanwhile, providing a positive update on the Celtic man's fitness.
The 29-year-old may be able to take part in the last two games of the Hoops' season and is raring to go, the coach says:
JK: "Charlie Mulgrew has been doing great and he played in a reserve game recently. He's trained for close to a month now."— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) May 14, 2015
JK: "He's looking good and we want to try to get him back involved and he looks as though he's ready to possibly play some part."— Celtic Football Club (@celticfc) May 14, 2015
The Scottish champions travel to St Johnstone on Friday night.
