Celtic Confirm a Testimonial is in the Works For Captain Scott Brown

Celtic Confirm a Testimonial is in the Works For Captain Scott Brown

Celtic have confirmed a testimonial for Scott Brown is on the way, following the ten-year anniversary of the midfielder signing for the Hoops.

It doesn’t quite feel like a decade, but it was way back in 2007 when Brown joined Celtic from Hibs for a fee in excess of £4 million – a price which seemed hefty at the time but is surely now regarded as an absolute bargain.

After captaining the club to an unbeaten treble last season, Brown will go down as one of Celtic’s greatest-ever captains, so it only makes sense that he’ll be honoured with a match in his honour.

The opposition has yet to be announced, but a statement on the Celtic website earlier this evening confirmed the news, saying: ‘Celtic Football Club has announced today that it has been approached by a Testimonial Committee, for the Committee to arrange a match at Celtic Park to mark the contribution of Scott Brown, a man who has given such excellent service to the Club over the past 10 years. The Club is delighted to facilitate this request.

‘The Committee will begin planning around this match, as well as other events including a dinner and golf day. The Testimonial Committee will provide supporters with more detail on these events, which will feature a major charitable element, in due course.’

Surely it’s nothing more than a player of Brown’s stature deserves, no? What do you think?

And who would you suggest as opposition? Hibs?
