WWE account praises Scott Brown after Celtic winner against Hamilton

Plenty of Celtic supporters posted on Twitter praising Scott Brown last night for his winner against Hamilton, but even the WWE got involved too.

It would be a significant night in the title-race. Brown’s late winner ensured that we finished the night two points clear of Rangers at the top of the Premiership. That was also down to the fact that Steven Gerrard’s men had failed to see off Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

WWE trio Joe Coffey, Markus Coffey, and Wolfgang were all in attendance. And as the official WWE UK account recognised their appearance at Parkhead, they also had a bit of praise for Scott Brown and Celtic to dish out:

The WWE trio in attendance are all big Celtic fans. One glance at their social media accounts will prove just that. This kind of thing also results in good PR for the club, and it was nice to see it recognised on an official WWE channel.

The Coffey Brothers and Wolfgang (real name Barry Young), compete on WWE’s NXT UK show. Both Wolfgang and Mark Coffey are the current NXT UK Tag Team Champions too.

Not everyone will have recognised the trio last night, but it’s fair to say their stock in the WWE is growing.

As for Celtic, it was another successful night with our consistency in the league finally rewarding us with a clear gap over Rangers. No longer does goal-difference have to be obsessed upon, with Celtic now knowing all they have to do to keep top spot is to continue winning, regardless of the margin.

We’re now three games into our hectic 10-game winter schedule, and so far we’ve managed to win them all. It’s a positive start to a grueling month, but with Rangers coming up on Sunday in the Betfred Cup final, the foot can’t come off the accelerator just yet.

And just like the rest of us, you can be certain the WWE trio will be glued to their TV screens on Sunday.
