Scott Brown marshalled Celtic into the Scottish Cup Final with a 3-0 win over Aberdeen at Hampden Park.
Goals from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Tom Rogic sealed a place in the final for the Hoops. It was a miserable day for the Dons who finished the game with nine-men and saw boss Derek McInnes sent to the stands too.
It kept alive dreams of a triple treble and Brown has proved instrumental to his team of late. The central midfielder has played 46 times in all competitions this season, despite being 33-years-old.
Brown is worshipped by Celtic fans and winning trophies clearly means as much to him now as ever.
Following yesterday’s game, he took to Twitter to celebrate and praise his team-mates. The tweet had a link to his Instagram post which showed a picture of Brown celebrating Forrest’s stunning opener.
The caption on the post read: “Great result today from all the lads and now a final to look forward to.”
Naturally, the Hoops ardent supporters are buzzing with Brown and his team-mates and they were quick to praise the performance of their influential skipper.

You my son, are a machine. You are making history which will Hail you in the eyes of the support for the rest of your days. Brooooooony!🥇
