'Top Bhoy' - Celtic fans celebrate Scott Brown's personal milestone
Scott Brown played his 500th game for Celtic in last night’s victory over Motherwell.
In a fitting tribute to Brown, Celtic got back to winning ways with a comfortable 3-0 win over Motherwell to return to the top of the Scottish Premiership.
The occasion would have been made ever sweeter by the fact that Celtic leapfrogged Rangers to reach the summit.
Brown has been at Celtic since joining the club from Hibernian in 2007.
11-and-a-half years on and the 55-cap ex-Scotland international has played 500 times in green and white hoops.
Brown is a popular figure at Celtic, affectionately known as “Broony” and captain of the side.
His medal haul while with the Bhoys is impressive and he boasts eight Scottish Premiership titles and nine cup wins.
The 33-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and there has been talk of a potential exit.
Western Melbourne, who play in Australia’s A-League, are trying to tempt him away from Celtic to finish his career, according to The Scottish Sun.
But last night was a celebration of him reaching 500 appearances for Celtic. Here are some things that fans were saying about this milestone.
Thank you for your commitment Scott. 👏👍
