SCOTT BROWN can overtake Lisbon Lion Bobby Murdoch’s medal haul of 18 – on the 52nd anniversary of Celtic’s historic European Cup Final triumph.

The Hoops skipper equalled the club great’s collection when he led the title kings to their eighth successive crown this season.

And Brown can go one better if the holders beat Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden this afternoon

The 33-year-old midfielder has now won nine league titles, five League Cups and four Scottish Cups. He also lifted the League Cup as a Hibs player 12 years ago.

Brown, who cost £4.4million when Gordon Strachan signed him from the Easter Road side in the summer of 2007, is now heading up the table in the all-time list of the club’s most successful players and managers.

POWERHOUSE…Bobby Murdoch, the midfield master in the Lisbon Lions.

Current interim manager Neil Lennon is one behind his captain after picking up his sixth league badge as manager to go with the 11 won as a player.

James Forrest, at 27, six years younger than Brown, isn’t far behind his former Scotland team-mate who retired from international football last year after making 55 appearances for his country.

The winger has just collected his 16th medal following the title success, making his silverware count eight leagues, four League Cups and four Scottish Cups.

Brown is also equal on 18 with club icons Alec McNair and Jimmy McMenemy as well as Murdoch.

The list is headed by Willie Maley with a remarkable THIRTY-FOUR trophies.

Next come Billy McNeill (31), Jock Stein (27), Bobby Lennox (25), Jimmy Johnstone (19), Brown, Murdoch, Alec McNair and Jimmy McMenemy (18), Lennon (17), Forrest (16), Jim Craig and Jim Young (15).
