Former England international Terry Butcher has named Celtic star Scott Brown ahead of Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.
The now 58-year-old former Hibernian manager was challenged to pick the best player alongside Joe Jordan when presented with two names who had played for Scotland or England ahead of the weekend’s World Cup qualifier.
Butcher himself went into the video stating: “I want to say every Englishman. Are you (Jordan) going to say every Scotsman? I’m going to say every Englishman.”
However, that claim came to an abrupt end with Brown and Scholes the first two names to appear.
Many would have gone for Scholes, who has won 11 Premier League titles, three FA Cups and two Champions League trophies in a glittering career and Jordan did side with the Englishman.
But, Butcher himself said, as shown by the STV Sport Twitter video: “I’ll go with Scott Brown.”
Scott Brown or Paul Scholes?
Ally McCoist or Alan Shearer?
Paul McStay or Steven Gerrard?

Brown himself has also had a glittering career after joining Celtic from Hibernian in the summer of 2007.
The now 31-year-old has helped the Hoops lift seven Premiership titles alongside three Scottish Cups and three Scottish League Cups.
He also played in 54 matches in all competitions for Celtic last season, as the Glasgow giants won a domestic treble and he will be looking to help Scotland earn a victory over the Three Lions on Saturday.
