SKIPPER Scott Brown believes Celtic have earned the right to be hailed as legends following their 38-game unbeaten Premiership campaign.
The Hoops can complete a phenomenal season by lifting the Scottish Cup against Aberdeen on Saturday to bring the club only their fourth treble in history.
But Brown says defending their title without suffering a solitary defeat has already earned his team-mates an iconic status.
When asked about the situation, the 31-year-old midfielder said: “Yeah – I don’t see why not.
“It’s down to our hard work and dedication. The gaffer wanted us to lose body fat, to eat pasta and normal foods and to work hard in training with lots of energy.
“Everyone has looked after themselves and we’ve had very few injuries apart from the odd hamstring pull.
“We’ve all been ready to go whenever the gaffer has asked us to be ready.”
The international star identified the remarkable comeback win over Motherwell at Fir Park in December as the day when the players began to believe anything was possible.
He said: “We were 2-0 down and the gaffer changed tactics at half-time and we got it back to 2-2, lost another to go down 3-2, but then won 4-3.
“The emotion that day of everyone celebrating together was great.
“We knew that if we went out in the second-half and played we could do it. It was the worst first 45 we had played and the gaffer let us know that.
“He was so calm and collected and the way he changed things worked. He gets paid to do that and he does it brilliantly.”
Wary Brown dismissed talk of 10-in-a-row and added: “Let’s see how next season goes.
“Hopefully, we can get back into the Champions league and we’ll take it from there.”
