Celtic fan group Bhoys have presented Scott Brown with a commemorative gift today, in recognition of his massive contribution to the club over the years.

The group also unveiled a banner outside Lennoxtown which read: “Thank you Broony. Forever a Celtic legend.”

They posted two photos to Instagram this afternoon with a message that read: “Today the group presented Scott Brown with a small gift to thank him for the time he has given to Celtic over the past 14 years. While his Celtic career hasn’t ended with the success that we hoped it would, as supporters we felt it was important to recognise and respect the contribution he has made in a Celtic jersey and in particular captaining us to 9 in a row.

“We wish him all the best in his future career.”

It’s going down a treat with the wider support too. Thousands of fans have liked the post.

Brilliantly, former Celtic hero and current Arsenal star Kieran Tierney was quick to respond in the comments also, showing his appreciation for the effort shown by the group.

Scott Brown is set to play in his last derby against Rangers at Ibrox tomorrow. In fact, it will be one of his last games in a Celtic shirt full stop.

The farewell tour is well underway and the club are preparing a tribute of their own to the legendary captain.

They’ve made arrangements for fans to drop off tributes, banners, scarves and strips to Celtic Park, which will be collected and arranged by club staff for our final home game of the season on May 12th against St Johnstone.

That will, of course, be Broony’s last match at Paradise as a Celtic player.

Emotions will be running high for that one.

Credit to the Bhoys group for going the extra mile today and putting a smile on the captain’s face. Well in!
