Scott Brown has insisted that no ones position is safe at the moment, including his as Celtic prepare to begin one of the biggest seasons in the clubs history.
The captain has been a hugely influential piece of the puzzle, as the Bhoys won nine league titles in a row, with Brown featuring in all of these individual campaign.
Speaking to the Glasgow Times, the skipper admitted that no one is guaranteed a slot in Neil Lennon’s starting 11, as the manager begins his push for 10 in a row and there is no room for sentimentality for the Northern Irishman.
“You are not guaranteed to start in the gaffer’s team no matter who you are. That’s part of what makes us push one another to a different level.
That’s also why the focus on us winning nine in a row happened, we all pushed each other to boundaries I don’t think we thought possible. We pushed each other to boundaries I don’t think we thought we could but we managed to do so.
Its been an incredible achievement to go nine years in-a-row and be so consistent throughout, to maintain that form and that aggressiveness and that never-say-die attitude. The same applies this season.”
It is good to see that even someone with such a key place in the squad, as Scott Brown knows that there is no place for passengers in this season. If your performances drops in a few games, it will simply be seen as not good enough in the eyes of not only the fans, but also the management team.
This attitude is exactly the way the squad of players should be looking at things, as they push to secure yet another league title for the club.
