SCOTT BROWN has managed to surpass Barry Ferguson’s European record of most games played in Europe by a Scottish player.
The Celtic captain helped see off Linfield last night and in doing so made his 83rd European appearance, winning him the accolade.
Former captain of the now defunct Rangers had set the pace at 82 before hanging up his boots. Now the Celtic captain looks to surpass this number by a healthy amount if Celtic manage to qualify for the Champions League group stages.
Just behind Ferguson on 81 is Celtic’s Keny Dalglish who made his Euro appearances with The Hoops and Liverpool. Scott did make his European bow with Hibs before moving to Celtic also.
Other notable Scottish Celts on the list are Paul Lambert (70), Billy McNeill (69) and Bobby Lennox (61).
