It was nine years ago today that a famous Celtic moment occurred, a moment which has helped turn a Hoops player into a legend.

That moment is Celtic captain Scott Brown’s famous ‘Broony’ celebration at Ibrox. With Celtic 2-1 down to Rangers and reduced to 10 men, the Hoops skipper curled an equaliser into the corner of the net.

The equaliser might have been one thing, but the celebration of the goal is what really sticks out. Brown stood with arms outstretched and just stared at Ranges’ El Hadji Diouf whilst the Hoops fans celebrated in style.

Here are some of the best replies from social media to the anniversary of ‘The Broony’:


Brown was already liked by the Hoop support before that goal, but that moment turned him into a hero.

Has become a legend since celebration

Since then, he has become a Celtic legend, leading the team to eight league titles in a row, with a ninth hopefully on the way.

For some fans though, it may have all started with Brown did ‘The Broony’. It’s probably one of the most memorable celebrations that a Celtic player has ever done.

Hopefully we get to see it a few more times before the end of the season.
