Scott Brown registered his fourth goal of the season, and his 44th in total in a Celtic shirt, as we earned a dramatic last-gasp victory over Hamilton Accies to move two points clear at the top of the Premiership table.

After a drab 90 minutes, the captain leapt onto a ball, drove forward and dragged a shot into the net – just minutes after the Lanarkshire side had scored an unlikely equaliser.

Celtic Park erupted but so did the world of Celtic Twitter. Especially after the club posted a Scott Brown appreciation tweet with a link to his own anthem on YouTube.

And many supporters were keen to let the club know just how much the immortal captain means to us all.

Sometimes lots of words don’t really sum up how we’re feeling. A simple emotive reaction does the trick.

We’re not sure whether this person was a fan of the admin’s word choice, or she had just misspelled ‘captain’. Others were definitely in favour of the person in charge of the Twitter account.

 

With Lionel Messi crowned a big Ballon d’Or winner just yesterday, maybe Brown has next year’s award on his mind.

One fan couldn’t resist the obvious headline.

Another fan just wants to see a permanent memorial to Brown’s efforts. He’s probably only half joking.

Verdict

Time will tell just how big a night tonight was in the grand scheme of things. It’s easy to tell yourself it was just Hamilton but getting three points in such a dramatic fashion, on a night when we were well below par, it just a sign of who we are.

You probably couldn’t have handpicked a better player to score the winner either. Brown doesn’t score many but they’re often spectacular or dramatic when he does.

Hopefully that late drama is exactly what the team needs ahead of Sunday’s game against Rangers. We could really kick our rivals while they’re down with victory at Hampden. Here’s hoping that’s the case and our skipper is proudly hoisting another trophy above his head on Sunday.
