SCOTT BROWN has welcomed the opportunity of leading Celtic to their seventh successive Premiership crown against his former club Hibs at Easter Road.
The SPFL split has sent the champions to Edinburgh a week on Saturday for a potential title decider with the Hoops requiring three points to make certain of the flag.
Brown, who was bought by Gordon Strachan for a Scottish record £4.4million in the summer of 2007, revealed a victory over Neil Lennon’s side in the capital would be a dream during his testimonial season.
The 32-year-old midfielder admitted the possibility of winning the championship to complete the Magnificent Seven where it all began will fire him up for the final push.
Brown said: “Obviously, Easter Road will always hold a special place in my heart as I have so many great memories from my early days there as a youngster with Hibs.
“That’s why, on a purely personal level, it would be the perfect place to win a title with Celtic at this stage in my career.
“We know we’re going to have our work cut out playing Hibs at Easter Road because Lenny has got them flying this season. They’ve had a great campaign.
“But we just want to get this league won at the earliest possible opportunity because we can take nothing for granted.”
If Brendan Rodgers’ outfit should fail to win at Brown’s old stomping ground, then there is the possibility of the title party being delayed until Sevco Rangers arrive at Parkhead on April 29.
It’s a scenario that excites many Celtic fans, but on this occasion their onfield leader might just disappointment them if he gets his wish eight days earlier!
