Scott Brown’s medal was deservedly wrapped around his neck after he captained Celtic to another Betfred Cup, but not for long!
The Hoops captain hilariously seemed to lose his cup-winner medal post-match as he was bouncing around with the rest of his team-mates at full-time.
BT Sport cameras managed to catch the brilliant moment during the euphoria. Fans, as always, have been quick to get it online too. Here’s a look at the moment Broony noticed his medal had managed to escape him!

Another big milestone for Brown
Make that seven Scottish League Cups for Brown and an incredible total trophy haul of 21 major competitions for both Celtic and Hibs respectively.
Today wasn’t one of his most standout performances in fairness. In the first half, he struggled to assert his dominance on the game as Celtic couldn’t get anything going in an attacking sense. Rangers put a high press on and we struggled to get out with a lack of options to hit up top.
However, Brown showed the traits of a captain afterward. His leadership, determination, and aggression really came to the fore.
One of the more noticeable battles that became prominent was Ryan Kent against Brown. The Rangers winger often found the Celtic captain crunching into him when he had half a yard of space in the second half. Brown seemed to make it a priority to make sure he didn’t have room to operate in. It’s fair to say it worked a treat as Rangers created little after Celtic went down to 10 men.
He knew where to target Rangers in stages of the game where many supporters may have been growing concerned. Brown lives in their heads rent-free and his dominance of this fixture continued once again today.
The captain may have lost his medal, but it’s not as if he has a shortage of them. Regardless, the medal couldn’t be any less of a reflection of Brown’s performance. He certainly didn’t go missing the way his gong did!
Ultimately, it was another massive moment that cements his status as a Celtic legend.
