Why Scott Brown turned down Celtic trophy offer as he makes Callum McGregor admission
Scott Brown says he rejected the chance to hand over the Premiership trophy as this moment is all about Callum McGregor.
The former Parkhead captain was afforded an opportunity by his old club to present the silverware.
However, after passing the armband to McGregor upon his departure last summer, Brown says it was right to leave the stage clear for his old vice-captain to take centre stage.
“That would make it all about me and not about Callum and it has to be about Callum and what he has done for the club and how hard he has worked.
“It was a no-brainer when I was leaving the club to make Callum captain as I knew he was a fantastic player and his work rate was exceptional and he runs the dressing room.
“That’s what you want for a captain as you want someone that is responsible and will work hard and who also leads by example on the park and he has done that this season.
“He has been exceptional. I am delighted for him, to be fair.”
