Celtic

Celtic legend Henrik Larsson has been drooling over how well Scott Brown has done in his 11 years at the club.

Brown, 32, has made 462 appearances in all competitions since signing for the Hoops from Hibernian in a deal worth £4.4million in 2007.

He has since won seven Scottish Premiership titles with the Glasgow giants in what has been one of the most successful eras in the club’s history.

Parkhead favourite Larsson has been raving about the impact that Brown has had at Celtic over the years and has giving a glowing verdict of the captain’s leadership qualities.

“It’s incredible. Not many players spend ten years at one club, so all credit to him,” Larsson said to Celtic View, as quoted by the Scottish Sun.

“Scott is a figurehead for the club and the team.

“He knows what it means to be a Celtic player and teaches the new guys what it means to be at the club.

“He understands the history and the qualities you need to lead the team.

“You don’t need to be up in people’s faces all the time – you just need the respect of the players.

“Scott is doing a great job at the club.”

Brown has been a mainstay of Brendan Rodgers’ side this season, making 46 appearances in all competitions.

Football Insider verdict

Brown will be one of them players who will go down in Celtic history. He has been a fantastic player and despite him now being 32-years-old, he seems to continue improving every year. Brown gets a lot of stick but he has still been the driving force behind one of the most successful sides that these islands have seen. He will enter the final year of his contract next season and surely Rodgers will be looking to get him tied down to another year. He would no doubt love to win 10 Scottish Premiership titles in a row as well.
