SCOTT BROWN was voted best player at Hampden when he played a captain’s part to push Celtic into the League Cup Final against Dundee United next month.

But the Hoops skipper is adamant the plaudits for the 2-0 victory over a poor Ibrox side should be shared among his team-mates.

The 29-year-old midfield dynamo said: “It doesn’t really matter who is Man of the Match.

“People score goals and others play well so they deserve praise as well – it’s a team game.

“It felt like the game could have gone on a bit longer for us.

“We were enjoying every single moment of it.”

Brown, speaking in this week’s Celtic View, added: “There were no nerves.

“As soon as we got on that pitch, we knew were going to cruise the game.

“We got the ball down and tried to play football. If that doesn’t work, sometimes you have to go long.

“The main thing is we have lots of players who can change games.

“We brought on James Forrest, Adam Matthews and John Guidetti on Sunday.

“They are all great players and it shows the strength in depth we have in the squad.”
