Celtic centre-back Jozo Simunovic has revealed the name of the club’s best trainer in a video on the club’s official YouTube channel. In news that will come as a surprise to few people, he has named Hoops skipper Scott Brown as the best trainer.

“He gives a good example, his power, his energy, in training, in games, nice to have him in the team’ the Hoops defender said about his team-mate.

It will be no shock to the Celtic fans that Brown treats the Hoops training with the highest intensity. His energy and power, as Simunovic calls it, translates from Brown to his team-mates. Not only in training, but in competitive matches.

A team without a player as influential as Brown might have crumbled when Brendan Rodgers left Celtic in February. However, Brown, in conjunction with Neil Lennon, managed to drag the Hoops to the title, when lesser teams may have fallen apart.

It speaks dividends for Brown’s value to the side that even as he reaches the veteran stages of his career, he is still arguably Celtic’s most important player.

The day he retires from the Celtic team will be a sad day indeed for the club. It could take a long time to replace Brown, the likes of him don’t come around at a club very often.
