Celtic captain Scott Brown has revealed that he would the Hoops to clinch the Scottish Premiership title at the home of his former club Hibernian.
The Bhoys only need one more win to clinch their seventh league title in a row, and they will have the opportunity to do this in the first game after the league split when they head to Easter Road.
Brown believes that clinching the title in the ground where he began his football career would be the ideal scenario.
“Obviously Easter Road will always hold a special place in my heart as I have so many great memories from my early days there as a youngster with Hibs,” he said, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“That’s why, on a purely personal level, it would be the perfect place to win a title with Celtic at this stage in my career.”
The Hoops have struggled at times against Neil Lennon’s side this season, drawing two and winning one of the three league matches between the teams this season.
Football Insider verdict
Brown might want to win the title at Easter Road, and there is no doubt that his manager Brendan Rodgers would agree, but if you ask the majority of Hoops fans they would much rather win the league title a week later, when they take on bitter rivals Rangers at Celtic Park. The players won’t be thinking like that though, and Brown will have his team-mates raring to go as they aim to clinch the league title. Of course, it won’t be easy for the Hoops as Hibernian are still in the battle for second place in the Scottish Premiership table, but if they play to the best of their abilities the title should be won.
