Return of the Magnificent 7! Willie Haughey’s update on Broony’s testimonial


“I would like to thank the huge numbers of supporters who have already snapped up their tickets for Scott’s match on 20 May.

“The number of fans who have taken tickets already is a real sign of the affection that they have for Scott and the appreciation they have for all he has done for the club.

“Sunday’s match at Hampden was yet another perfect demonstration of Scott’s talent, his commitment to the club, and his desire to always deliver for the Celtic supporters. He is a true leader and someone who is so deserving of the tribute he will be receiving.

“We are looking to create a fantastic occasion in May when the great Martin O’Neill will return to Celtic Park with his Ireland team to join Brendan and the Celtic first team to honour a great Celtic player.

“It is wonderful, too, that Henrik is now joining in the match. It is something he was very keen to do, to show his real appreciation and respect for all Scott has achieved. Like Scott, Henrik has delivered phenomenal success to our fans and I’m sure our supporters will be delighted to see such a great Celtic icon grace Paradise once again.

“We have just over a month to go now until the match. There are still tickets left and I know as many fans will want to be part of this great day. Thank you again for all your support so far.”

Willie Haughey is head of the Scott Brown testimonial committee.
