Dedryck Boyata names the Celtic player who trains hardest

By Harvey Byrne

Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata has named stalwart midfielder and captain Scott Brown as the hardest worker in training.

The 31-year-old midfielder has been at the club since completing a move from Hibernian in 2007.

He has shone in his 10 years at the club, starring in a total of 406 matches in all competitions for the Hoops.

The tireless midfielder doesn’t seem to be stopping at his age either and this season alone he has played in 44 encounters in all competitions.

Now, teammate Boyata may have just revealed the secret to Brown’s longevity, as he named him as the hardest working Celtic player in training in the question and answer session via the club’s official Twitter account on Wednesday.

Brown has been pivotal for Celtic over the years, helping the club win the Premiership six times alongside two Scottish Cup and three League Cups.

He has also been named in the SPL team of the year three times and he is currently on course to lifting his seventh league title this season.

The Glasgow giants are sat 27 points clear at the top of the league with a clash against fierce rivals Rangers coming up next on Sunday.
