The Celtic captain will be delighted this morning following his side’s 2-1 victory over Rangers at Celtic Park yesterday.

Brown was on the receiving end of Alfredo Morelos’ elbow in the first half and then took a Ryan Kent punch following Celtic’s winner.
He was then the target of Andy Halliday’s anger after he celebrated in front of the Rangers supporters at full-time.
But the win is all that matters for Brown – that and his trademarking of ‘The Broony’.
Apparently Brown hasn’t been happy with several others in the public eye using his pose, including Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield:
Brown is also apparently aware of Scottish DJ Calvin Harris having used it during Las Vegas gigs:
And Leonardo DiCaprio doing it while playing Jordan Belfort in Wolf of Wall Street has supposedly angered Brown to the point he put the plans in motion to trademark it:
Brown apparently has a trademark pending with the Intellectual Property Office and is at the final stages of that process.
So the hands outstretched either side will now be officially known as ‘The Broony’ and the Celtic captain will have to give prior permission before anyone decides to use it.
