Scott Brown’s display against St Johnstone has certainly unified the Celtic fans tonight.
The Hoops captain put in yet another commanding display, as he continues to flourish since the return to action this month.
Brown has been going through a bit of a mini-renaissance in recent times. Being locked out of the team during large parts of October and November seemed to initially set him back a tad. Some disappointing performances, most notably against Rangers, was cocerning.
But, since returning from the club’s training camp in Dubai, the former Hibernian starlet is back to his best once again. As he racked up his seventh consecutive start, fans have been heaping the praise on his display.
Here’s a look at just some of the plaudits the Celtic captain can enjoy from Twitter:

The timing of Brown’s consistency couldn’t be better
It’s been a very interesting last month or two for Brown. The midfielder is reportedly set to stay at Celtic and turn down a move to Australia. This is despite a long-running saga that had him weighing up the move for a prolonged period of time.
Just yesterday, Brown also apparently rejected a contract from Dubai-based Al-Wasl. That deal would’ve provided him with a reported £2million-per-year.
Yes, the temptation was surely there for the Celtic captain. And whilst he may still yet depart, the reports of his decision to stay are coming at a welcome time.
Brown was back to his imperious best against St Johnstone. He showed his engine is nowhere near empty, and bossed an at times overly-aggressive Saints midfield.
Celtic are now starting to kick on with some serious momentum. They now have four wins in-a-row, and are closing on five – something they haven’t done for nearly 18 months.
It’s all starting to look rosy for Celtic again, after stretching their lead in the Scottish Premiership to six points. And with Brown spearheading the charge for the foreseeable future, midfield partnerships in Scotland will be quaking once again.
