Scott Brown is relishing the opportunity to have a proper goodbye with the Celtic fans in an upcoming event with Mikael Lustig at the Hydro in Glasgow.

Both Invincible icons will take to the stage on May 18th, entertaining the crowd with stories and reflections on their time at the Bhoys. For Brown, it’s a big opportunity to connect with the support, having left the club at the end of the pandemic season that did not include crowds at matches.

Posting on Instagram tonight, the former captain made it clear it’s a huge night for him, stating: “After 14 unbelievable seasons at Celtic, I never got the chance to say my proper farewells and thank you to the fans for their amazing support throughout my time at the club. So I am delighted to get the opportunity to do that at our event and also support the incredible work of Celtic FC Foundation. Me and Lusto hope to see you all there.”

Brown and Lustig event will raise Celtic charity money

All net proceeds of the event will indeed go to the Foundation, so fans shelling out for tickets to attend will know their cash is heading to a good cause.

Tickets are currently available to season ticket holders from £35, with a general sale planned down the line. You can find more info on how to purchase via the official club website.

Brown added more thoughts on the occasion in an interview with club media, stating: “I finished at 36 in front of no fans in a stadium, which was disappointing because it was hard – it was not the season that anybody ever wanted, the fans or the players.

“I hope it’s going to be a good night. We’ll see how my chat is that night! I’m just delighted to go back with Lusto (Mikael Lustig) as well, because I’ve not seen him since he left. We’ve kept in touch with text messages and phone calls, but we’ve not actually had the chance to meet up.

“I’m just delighted to see the Celtic fans, because, as I said, I never had that chance personally to say thanks very much for everything they did for me. I know they had my back throughout hard times and good times as well, but there were a lot more good times than bad times – and just to see Lusto as well, I’ll be delighted to see the big man and see if his English has got any better!”

It’ll be fantastic for thousands of the legend’s biggest fans to share one more night with him! Nice one Broony!
