Scott Brown has been named in the Scottish Professional Football League team of the week, after Celtic beat Dundee 1-0 on Saturday.
Captain Brown scored the decisive goal in the match during the second-half and the results levels them four points clear at the top of the table, with one game in hand on second-placed Aberdeen.
Brown, 31, was the only Celtic player included in the team and several players may still have been recovering from their dramatic 3-3 draw with Manchester City in the Champions League.
Aberdeen’s James Maddison was named as the star man in the official team of the week following his performance in the 4-0 win against Kilmarnock.
Celtic remain the only unbeaten side in the Scottish Premiership and Brown’s first league goal of the season proved crucial.
Brown is regarded as one of the most important players at the club and has continued to shine under manager Brendan Rodgers.
The central midfielder has now racked up 379 appearances for the Scottish giants, scoring 36 goals and supplying 53 assists.
He recently announced his retirement from international football and is a huge loss in Gordon Strachan’s latest Scotland squad.
Brown admitted he quit international duty to further his Celtic career and the talisman has already made a remarkable 17 appearances in all competitions this season.
In other Celtic team news, a remarkable 13-year-old has made his debut for the club in the Umder-20s against Hearts.
