Scott Brown has disclosed his favourite match of Celtic’s unbeaten streak of 69 games – and shockingly it wasn’t the historic 5-1 win at Ibrox against Rangers.
The run was ended by Hearts in a 4-0 loss at Tynecastle, and when Brown was asked by Celtic’s official website about the highlight of the British record run, he chose the 4-3 win over Motherwell at Fir Park in December 2016.
The game was a thriller, with the Hoops coming from 2-0 then 3-2 behind to draw level before a late Tom Rogic strike won the game.
Reflecting on the game, Brown said: “The Motherwell game when we were 2-0 down and we have managed to come back and win 4-3 showed the lads’ fighting spirit.
“Everyone thought we were down and out at half-time but the manager changed the formation a little bit and we went out in the second half and were fantastic.”
Brown captained the side during the unbeaten run to four domestic trophies, the first domestic treble since 2001 and the first undefeated league season since the 1890s.
That is in the past though, as the Hoops are in the middle of a title battle with Aberdeen.
Celtic are currently only two points clear of the Dons, but have a game in hand to be played at Celtic Park on Wednesday night against bottom of the league Partick Thistle.
The Bhoys and Aberdeen then clash at Celtic Park this Saturday, in a match that is shaping up to be one of the most important of the season so far.
The first match between the sides this season ended in an emphatic 3-0 win for the Hoops at Pittodrie, thanks to a double from Moussa Dembele and a Kieran Tierney thunderbolt.
