Former Celtic captain Scott Brown will lead out a side of Hoops legends for the return of the Master’s Football tournament in July.

The legendary tournament announced its return after a 10-year absence this afternoon, taking place at Braehead in three months, with ex-players from Manchester United, Liverpool, Celtic and Rangers all taking part.

The first of the former Celtic heroes to be announced was Scott Brown, who will feature for the side in Glasgow against the likes of Barry Ferguson, Steve McManaman and Louis Saha.

This marks the return of the former heroic Celtic number eight after his departure from Parkhead last summer.

Celtic fans will be able to see the 36-year old lead out the Hoops once again, with tickets on sale for the tournament taking place on the 8th of July.

Supporters who cannot attend the event will also be able to watch, which will be streamed on the day.

It is always exciting to see former players pull the green and white back on in these games.

I am sure Brown will still have that competitive edge he was well-known for in Scotland, given he has only recently taken a step back from the game.

Many more Celtic players are still to be announced for the event, with a squad of nine players taking part in the tournament for each team.

It will undoubtedly be interesting to see Brown line up with some former club greats that supporters might not have expected.
