Video: Scott Brown scores against Celtic days after signing

Scott Brown has been at the heart of the success enjoyed by the club in the last fourteen years having signed from Hibs in 2007. Thanks to @Lilze_7 on Twitter, we can relive two pivotal moments in Brown’s career, his final match at Hibs and his testimonial for Celtic. Broony will be sorely missed next season after the 35-year-old made the decision to leave the club, joining Aberdeen.

Flashback to 2007, days after Brown signed for Strachan’s Celtic, Hibernian hosted Celtic at Easter Road. Derek Riordan opened the scoring for Celtic before Brown started a move from the centre circle before heading the ball into the net. Celtic lost 2-1 after Ivan Sproule scored in the 90th minute.

Twelve years later, one day after the Double Treble Scottish Cup Final, Celtic celebrated their captain with a testimonial match against Ireland.

Brown leaves Celtic to reunite with his former Hibernian teammate Stephen Glass. The deal offers him some security as it is a two-year deal which encapsulate both playing and coaching, which for a soon to be 36-year-old is highly desirable. You would not rule out seeing the player return to Celtic in a managerial capacity at some point in the next few years.
