Celtic captain Scott Brown took to Instagram to thank the club’s supporters after making his 400th appearance for the side against St. Johnstone on Wednesday night.

The Scotland international led his team to a 1-0 win at  Celtic Park to see them extend their unbeaten domestic run to 26 games leaving them 22 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Following the win, Brown posted on his personal Instagram account: “Thanks very much to all the fans for the support over the 10 years at this great club.

“How use [sic] have managed to put up with my performances I will never know. #400 and counting”

The 31-year-old joined the Hoops from Hibernian for a fee of £4.4m in 2007 and has since scored 36 goals and bagged 55 assists in his 400 appearances.

Brown was made club captain by Tony Mowbray in February 2010.

He lifted his first silverware as captain the following year when his side beat Motherwell 3-0 to win the Scottish Cup.

The experienced midfielder also has 51 caps for Scotland and was made captain of the national team in 2013 by Gordon Strachan.

Brown retired from international football last August, only to change his mind two months later. He also gave up the international captaincy to fellow midfielder Darren Fletcher.

Celtic’s next game comes on Sunday against Hearts in the Scottish Premiership.
