Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass has provided an update on what actually happened to Scott Brown at Celtic Park yesterday.

Broony was making his return to Parkhead for the first time since his emotional departure in the summer. The midfielder signed for Aberdeen in a shock move and has become a commanding leader in the Granite City under Glass in a player-coach capacity.

Brown bagged 22 winner’s medals at Celtic Park, and it’s fair to say he got a standing ovation as he innocuously came off with just under 25 minutes to go.

And Dons manager Glass has given an update on what exactly happened with the legendary ex-Hoops captain.

As quoted by the Daily Record, Glass said: “We had to reshuffle when we didn’t want to as two of our midfield players had to go off.

“That limits how much you can change things higher up. Dylan [McGeouch] got a bang on his calf in the first half and it was tightening up and had to come off. Broony had a little bit of tightness in his hamstring.

“I don’t know if it’s cramp or injury. If there is any chance of him playing he will be there.”

Hopefully no major injury concerns for Scott Brown after Celtic Park return

At this stage, all we can do is hope that Broony comes back from his injury knock as soon as possible. He’s such a vital figure for the Dons that Glass will almost certainly be desperate for a quick return.

It wasn’t the return to Parkhead that Brown will have been praying for. Certainly not the one he would’ve been dreaming about either. Whether it be his on-field performance or the injury knock, nothing really went to plan for him.

Indeed, Broony found it a difficult ask trying to stifle a dominant Celtic midfield yesterday. He struggled to keep Callum McGregor quiet whilst David Turnbull was another pulling the strings in an attacking midfield position.

Brown did manage to get in some crucial blocks, but it was a quieter display than he would’ve liked. It was just unfortunate to see him having to come off for the closing stages when you consider how big an occasion this was for him.

Then again, he’ll have appreciated the opportunity to get a standing ovation. Celtic supporters never really had a chance to say goodbye to him last season given his move hadn’t been confirmed before our final match of the campaign.

At the very least, that was afforded to us and Brown will undoubtedly have enjoyed the moment, even if it came with a knock. Fingers crossed he makes a swift recovery.
