Scott Brown confirmed his status as certified hardman last weekend during Celtic's 2-0 win against Aberdeen. In a game that saw two red cards and numerous flashpoints, Brown grabbed the headlines after he was hit by a robust challenge and subsequently had the ball kicked against him yet rose to celebrate the entire affair.

Scott Brown. You can kick him, punch him, you can sing whatever you like but you can’t even hurt his feelings. He’s the captain every club wants.

Not to be outdone, former Celtic footballer Chris Sutton has tonight replicated the entire episode, right down to the celebration.

The fanfare surrounding Scott Brown is quite interesting. The enforcer has been at the club for 11 years and continues to delight Celtic fans while enraging certain rival ones. Whether it be taking delight in being hacked or wandering around Russia in a t-shirt, there is no doubt that the 32-year-old is absolutely box-office.
