“I made that decision to be horrible, to be a pantomime villain,” Scott Brown

Celtic legend Scott Brown has been speaking to BBC Scotland Sport about the on-field persona that he chose to adopt during his time at Celtic and how he took inspiration from Manchester United’s Roy Keane.

Broony says he had the decision to be horrible and be a pantomime villain on the park, but he then want back to his normal self afterwards, enjoying a laugh and a joke. On the park though he’d play on the edge, enjoying being close to booking and he’d speak to no-one.

It’s an interesting insight into the former Celtic captain and no-one can really argue that Broony’s plan didn’t work out for him over his 619 appearances for Celtic where he scored 46 goals. In terms of honours Scott Brown won ten Scottish titles with Celtic and a dozen cups, six of both the Scottish and League Cups in a remarkably successful career at the club.
