Celtic skipper Scott Brown has explained that lifting a second successive Scottish Premier League trophy with the club has been “special”.
The Hoops collected their 44th Scottish top flight trophy on Saturday, following a 4-0 thrashing of St. Johnstone at Celtic Park.
The match also marked the return of Scotland international Brown to the first team, who started his first game in almost three months after recovering from injury, and also collected the man of the match award.
"It´s special", the 27-year-old midfielder told Celtic View.
"It´s always special lifting the SPL trophy but to play so well it means even more, it was an outstanding day. It was a great occasion, the lads did really well and it was a special atmosphere.”
Brown also paid tribute to the home supporters for motivating the team through the 90 minutes of the game as well as staying on to join the players in celebrating the victory.
"The fans were outstanding from the first minute until the last. To do it at home as well means a lot to the players.
“We knew it was going to be a big game and a big occasion in front of the home fans and they helped us along."
Celtic have just one league game remaining this season – against Dundee United on Sunday.
They can achieve a potential double this season with a win against Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup at Hampden Park on 26th May.
