Celtic captain Scott Brown has lauded his side performance yesterday title-wining performance as the Parkhead claimed the title with some style.
The retired Scotland international admitted that his side win against Rangers was laced with an additional layer of enjoyment and later admitted that the win against Rangers was laced with an additional layer of enjoyment.
“It’s lovely, the way we did it, in the sunshine, in front of our own fans by beating Rangers.”
“It was all about our own performance today. We let ourselves down last week against Hibs but we managed to bounce back.
“We had spoken about bouncing back in style and we did that today. I think the start, the way we pressed, we had worked all week on that in training – how we were going to press, how we would get it straightened out on the park.
“It’s the first time the title has been won against Rangers for a long, long time at Celtic Park.
“So it’s a great honour to be here and be part of it. There have been a lot of good wins against Rangers recently but, for me, that has to be right up there.
“Just the emotions of today, how we played, the style and just managing to play how we wanted to play, that made it special. It’s all come good at the right time.”
It was five going on more yesterday but Brown was reluctant to allow any cloud to darken Celtic’s horizon.
“There were no disappointments.
“Look at the way we played. We felt we could have scored more. We created chances, they just didn’t go in.
“It’s very sweet. It’s all about us today, the style we played. We let ourselves down with not being able to win the league at Easter Road. But we had a good week in training and it showed on the park.”
