This weekend, Ange Postecoglou and his side will return to league action at Celtic Park for the first time since the end of October.

After a tough fixture away in Germany on Thursday, they face another potential test on Sunday when Aberdeen travel to Glasgow.

Of course, there will also be a return to Parkhead for a former club hero as Scott Brown prepares to line up for an opposition side at Celtic Park.

Speaking ahead of this weekend game, Dons boss Stephen Glass talked about the ex Celtic captains return, stating his expectations of the sort of reception the 36-year old will receive in front of a full-house on Sunday.

“I would expect he will get a very good reception,” he said, speaking to the Scotsman.

“Everything he did for Celtic and Celtic did for him. I would imagine he will get a fitting tribute from their fans.

“However, it’s a group of fans who want their team to win, so I think during the game it might be a different matter. Certainly before, maybe at times during and after, I’m sure he will feel what the Celtic people feel about him.”

It will be a bit of an emotional return for Brown on an afternoon where the club also pays tribute to another former great in Bertie Auld.

Broony was also unfortunate to not receive a send-off by the Celtic support, given last seasons games were all played behind closed doors.

I am sure he will get a massive reception by the Celtic Park crowd. But, as Glass states, once the game is underway, all the focus will be on Ange Postecoglou’s Hoops side picking up the three points.


  1. Not that the supporters are expecting every time Scott Brown comes to Paradise, will be like a testimonial for him.
    But when he does retire. We will all be queuing up to buy a ticket for that game, it it involves Celtic.
