It’s been a magnificent season for Celtic captain Scott Brown.
The 32-year-old has inspired his team to glory in both the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish League Cup this season. The Bhoys will complete the domestic treble on Saturday if they defeat Motherwell in the Scottish Cup final.
Brown was recently named the Scottish PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the Scottish Football Writers’ Footballer of the Year following months of talismanic performances in Celtic’s midfield.
“I was determined to prove a point to everyone because people were saying I was finished and that my legs were gone,” Brown told reporters last week
“People were talking about me retiring but there’s no chance of that in the next three or four years.”
Indeed, the no-nonsense midfielder has shown this season that he’s far from finished.
In fact, it could be argued that he remains Celtic’s most important player. He’s certainly their most influential; a true leader both on and off the pitch.
'What goes around, comes around'
Brown is renowned for flying into tackles and crunching opponents but the Scotland international has found himself on the receiving end of some horrific tackles over the course of the current campaign. The most recent incident occurred during Celtic’s 1-0 defeat against Aberdeen last weekend.
Graeme Shinnie was shown a yellow card for a terribly reckless challenge on Brown and then shrugged it off after the match.
“There was a few nasty tackles, including one by myself,” the Aberdeen skipper said. “They weren’t happy about it, but I’ve been on the receiving end of many of them in my time.
“So, what comes around goes around.”
Brown issues chilling response
Brown, however, issued a chilling response to Shinnie after hearing the 26-year-old’s ‘what goes around, comes around’ remark.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of this weekend’s Scottish Cup final, you can watch Brown’s response here…
You wouldn’t like to be in Shinnie’s shoes right now.
The last person you’d want holding a grudge against you is Scott Brown.
Keep an eye out for the first Aberdeen v Celtic match of the 2018-19 season.
A reducer from Brown on Shinnie now looks inevitable.
