SCOTT SINCLAIR insists Celtic skipper Scott Brown doesn’t get the praise he deserves.
The powerhouse midfielder turned in another commanding performance in the 4-0 Betfred League Cup quarter-final win over Dundee at Dens Park in midweek.
Sinclair and two-goal James Forrest took the spotlight, but the English ace reckoned Brown once again led by example.
He admitted: “I said last year that Scott Brown was an under-rated player.
“In fact, Broony is VERY under-rated. He goes under the radar.
“He’s our captain and he’s a great leader. Not only does he make strong challenges, he gets the ball down and passes it. He ticks the play over and controls the midfield.
“I think all the goals the front three have been scoring has maybe taken some of the light off Broony, but he’s a great player and a fantastic captain.”
Looking at the destruction of Dundee, Sinclair, who netted the opener with a penalty-kick, added: “It was a great result and we’re high in confidence now.
“We were always in control of the game from start to finish. The boys did very well, created a lot of chances and we took them.
“The front three as a team are always trying to create chances and score goals and that’s what we’ve been doing every game.
“We now go into tomorrow’s game at Ibrox high on confidence and focused on getting the result there as well.”
