CONFIRMED! Tickets on sale Wednesday for Celtic v Ireland, Scott Brown testimonial, Sunday 20 May

MARTIN O’NEILL will bring Ireland to Celtic Park to play Celtic in Sunday 20 May in testimonial match for Celtic captain Scott Brown. And the match will help raise funds for the family of former Celtic and Ireland international midfielder Liam Miller who sadly passed away recently.

The game will take place the day after the Scottish Cup Final, which Celtic will be in if they can see off Rangers in the semi-final next month. This would set up a tremendous weekend on 19 and 20 May when Scott Brown could be the first captain ever to pick up a double treble at Hampden on the Saturday – against Aberdeen or Motherwell – before returning to Celtic Park the next day for an Irish party.

“We are delighted to announce this match which we are sure will capture the imagination of supporters and be a fitting tribute to a fantastic player and a great Celtic and Scotland captain,” said Willie Haughey, who chairs the Scott Brown testimonial committee.

“Scott has served Celtic brilliantly now for more than 10 years, establishing himself as a true fans’ favourite. He is someone who has given his all to the club, and for the past decade he has dedicated himself to Celtic and played a crucial role in delivering a phenomenal level of success to the club’s supporters.

“We would sincerely like to thank Celtic Football Club for granting Scott this testimonial match and, of course, we are very grateful to the FAI and Martin O’Neill for agreeing to travel to Glasgow to take part in this celebration of one of the club’s most successful players and greatest servants.”

Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday for the Scott Brown testimonial and the game will kick off at 2pm. Tickets are priced at £24 and £9 (various concessions) with season ticket holders having until 11 April to purchase a maximum of two each after which remaining seats will be put on general sale.

Last week Celtic fans were served up click bait nonsense about Liverpool being the likely opponents, but instead it is going to be a green, white and gold festival of football to honour a true Celtic legend, our wonderful skipper Scott Brown.

Be there.
