  • Brown: An honour to captain history Bhoys

    Brown: An honour to captain history Bhoys

    By: Mark Henderson on 05 Nov, 2017 09:00

  • SCOTT Brown saluted the Celtic fans, along with his manager and team-mates, after the Hoops broke the club’s own British domestic unbeaten record in Saturday’s resounding success away to St Johnstone.

    The Scottish treble-winners’ tremendous triumph in Perth made it 63 games without defeat, eclipsing the 100-year-old milestone of Willie Maley’s great Celtic team.

    And, despite the match coming just four days after their UEFA Champions League thriller against Bayern Munich, it never it looked in any doubt that the Bhoys would create history at McDiarmid Park as they dominated the contest from start to finish.

    Speaking after the game, the skipper said: “It’s a great honour to captain this side and to come into training very day and play in front of our fans, who have been phenomenal from the first game all the way to the 63rd It showed in the atmosphere on Saturday and it was our fans who created it for 90 minutes.

    “The lads in the squad have been fantastic. We have played some great games and some not so great, but it’s the ones you don’t play well, such as going away to Motherwell, when you are struggling are 2-0 down at half-time and digging out a result from that shows the lads’ fight and willingness to win.”

    And the 32-year-old also highlighted the squad’s fitness levels as they rose to the challenge once again on the back of their European exertions.

    “That’s why we have a great squad,” he said. “The gaffer chops and changes it but on Saturday it was the same team from Bayern Munich, which has not happened a lot since the gaffer has been in charge as he usually makes one or two changes and makes a change of formation.

    “People may have thought we would have been tired but it was the complete opposite – we were looking forward to this game.

    “It shows you our level of fitness in the last 10 or 15 minutes there,” continued Brown. “We played a great opponent during the week and we pushed ourselves all the way and we can come and do it in an early kick-off again on Saturday. It’s about determination, top-quality management and the players being willing to learn as well.”
