Paul Robinson revealed he thought Celtic midfielder Scott Brown gets the praise he deserves and admitted no one could really deny that he is a good footballer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England No.1 stated that Brown’s record speaks for itself before highlighting what he offers the Hoops.
Brown started Sunday’s 1-0 win over Rangers with his teammates managing to hang on to the victory despite going down to 10-men during the match.
Robinson explained that Brown’s recent last-gasp goal in the 2-1 victory over Hamilton highlighted how well the veteran midfielder had looked after himself.
When asked if Brown gets all the credit he deserves, Robinson told Football Insider: “I think his record speaks for itself.
“I don’t think he gets undersold as you don’t play at a club like Celtic for as long as he has if you’re not a good footballer, which he clearly is.
“He’s got the aggressive, tough-tackling, work-hard ethic in his game but he also has quality on the ball.
“He breaks things up, his ball retention is excellent and he scored in midweek against Hamilton in the 92nd minute, so at 34-years-old that speaks very highly about his fitness level and his ability to get up and down the pitch and into the box at that late stage.”
The 34-year-old has played 547 times for the Hoops and has lifted the league title with them nine times so far in his career.
Brown is contracted to stay at Parkhead until June 2021 after signing a contract extension in January 2019.
