Celtic deserve to be Champions and Rangers know it says Scott Brown

SCOTT BROWN has stated rightfully that Celtic deserve to be crowned Champions of Scotland should the league be unable to be played to a conclusion. The Celtic captain even went as far as saying that Rangers knew ‘deep down’ that Neil Lennon’s side were fully deserving of 9-in-a-row.

Speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, Brown reiterated claims he made in March that Celtic deserved the title. The Scottish Champions sit 13 points clear of second placed Rangers with eight games remaining, Brown continues to say that even those at Rangers know that the title deserves to be won by Celtic.

“I think 99 per cent of Scotland can see that we are flying.

“Even Rangers said in a few statements that their only chance of silverware was the Scottish Cup.

“Even they know deep down that we do deserve this.

“I just feel sorry for all our players and the backroom staff who have worked so hard, for people to be saying that we don’t deserve it.

“In my opinion, we totally do.”

Brown made similar comments on PLZ Soccer earlier in the day, in which he said that “They were never going to catch us” in the title race following Celtic’s incredible form following the winter break.

Brown has reiterated Celtic’s desire to win the league on the park but realises the issues that would have due to Coronavirus. The Celtic captain spoke to PLZ Soccer about his career and how the season had gone so far.

Host Peter Martin spoke to Brown about PSG, who were awarded the Ligue 1 trophy on Thursday and released a statement saying that it was ‘not ideal the way we were awarded the title but we are absolutely delighted we are champions again.’ Brown was asked what his thoughts were on potentially being awarded the league without playing the remaining matches.

“We want to finish the league, we believe that we can push the points up. We were playing well at the time. Sad that the fans can’t see us picking up that trophy when we are champions.”

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old spoke about his desire to keep playing until his legs ‘fall off.’ Martin asked if he was spurred on by the prospect of winning 10IAR but Brown isn’t setting a definitive date yet, he is taking it as it comes.

“For me as long as I can keep up with the lads I deserve to be there. The day I struggle in training and games and I know myself and the manager knows it and 60,000 people know it too – that’s the day I call it quits.

“I’m not going to say it will be one or two seasons – you see Gordon Strachan going on till 40 and Ryan Giggs playing late on.

“You have people like that who you look up to and you think, ‘if I work as hard as I possibly can then can I push my body to play till 39 or 40?’
