Celtic captain Scott Brown, who is currently in his tenth season with the Hoops is set to announce his testimonial match soon.

The Scottish Sun are reporting that the Hoops are close to agreeing a game against the Republic of Ireland, managed by former Hoops boss Martin O’Neill on the 20th of May, the day after the Scottish Cup Final.

The Hoops could be celebrating a unique double treble that day, but even if they aren’t, one player that deserves a bumper crowd is Brown.

He has been the best Celtic player of the decade, and his influence on the team is still massive, just look at the recent 3-2 win over Rangers at Ibrox for a perfect example.

As soon as the Hoops were reduced to 10 men, senior player Brown went around to each player with instructions from Brendan Rodgers, and as a result he was able to guide the Bhoys to a famous win.

The way he has reinvented himself under Rodgers deserves plenty of credit too, as at one stage of his career it looked like his chronic injury problems had caught with him.

At the age of 32, Brown knows that he only has a few years left in the game, which was confirmed when he recently quit international football.

Despite this, he is still going strong for the Hoops, and as he prepares to lead the team to a seventh consecutive league title let’s hope the crowds turn out to celebrate one of the best Hoops players of the last 25 years.
