Ex-Celtic striker reveals Scott Brown hated him during his time at Parkhead

CILLIAN SHERIDAN has revealed that he was hated by Scott Brown when he first trained with the Celtic first team under Gordon Strachan. Speaking to the latest instalment of the Open Goal podcast with Si Ferry, Paul Slane and Kevin Kyle, Sheridan spoke about his well travelled career and breaking through into the first team.

Sheridan made his breakthrough under Strachan but has revealed that he didn’t like going to train with the first team because he was scared of making a mistake.

“When we got called up to go and train with the first-team, you would hate it.

“The only thing I would think of in training is don’t make a mistake instead of thinking this is my chance to make a mark. Who would be on me? Browny. He hated me.

“Some days I could be terrible and other days I could do something and people would be thinking, ‘where did he get that from?’

“It was mostly the first part. I’d do the basic thing really really poorly. The only memory I always have from first team training is just Browny raging at me, saying ‘what is this?’

Brown has a reputation for being a tough trainer, as you can imagine from his performances on the park. Sheridan left Celtic in August 2010 for Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia having played 19 games and scoring 4 goals.

Brown admitted that he was a serial moaner in an interview with Grant Hanley and you can imagine that if he was as demanding on the park as he is now, Sheridan’s fears of training with him may be justified.
