Video – “We’ve got 100% faith in the manager, he’s been fantastic,” Scott Brown

Scott Brown also spoke to the media ahead of leaving Celtic Park to flight to Prague for the Europa League Match against Sparta Prague tomorrow night. The Celtic captain was adamant that Neil Lennon has the backing of the Celtic players and believes that the league can still be won, despite admitting that performances have not been up to scratch recently.

Like Neil Lennon, the Celtic skipper accepts that Celtic must win tomorrow night against Sparta if they are to keep their European hopes alive. And the Celtic player will be playing for personal pride too after badly letting themselves down in the first leg defeat which as humiliating to say the least for a club like Celtic.

“The way we performed at home wasn’t Celtic, we let ourselves and the fans down. We’ve now got the opportunity to bounce back. It’s going to be a hard game, we need to try make the most of it. We need to play well and we owe the manager this one,” Broony said.

“We’ve got 100% faith in the manager, he’s been fantastic. The support we’ve had through 9-in-a-row has been incredible. Stick with us and make sure we are all together,” the Celtic skipper said.

“I think now’s the time we all come together. The fans have been fantastic for us and this is the time we all stick together, we are pushing for something special,” he added.

“We know the performances haven’t been up to scratch and now is the time to fix this, extremely quickly. The manager and backroom staff are working extremely hard and now for us, when we go on the park we need to do the exact same.”
