Celtic captain's comments should make Bhoys fans very proud

Scott Brown has hailed Celtic's supporters for their constant vocal backing throughout the season.

Scott Brown has outlined the importance of Celtic's supporters on the Bhoys' official site.

Celtic are one of the best supported clubs in Europe and Brown has paid testament to the supporters who were in attendance for the League Cup Final last weekend.

Celtic sold out their entire allocation at Hampden Park and the noise level they created helped guide the club to a 2-0 victory over Dundee United. 

“The fans were great from start to finish, chanting, singing their songs and waiting behind afterwards to see us do the lap of honour," Brown said. "It shows what it means to them and it shows what it means to the lads as well.

“They are huge to us - they come out in all weathers and conditions, singing and chanting for the full 90 minutes and do everything possible to help us win the game.”

The Parkhead atmosphere is one which is famous across the world and Brown's comments will only make Celtic supporters feel more involved.

In modern day football there is often an argument that there is a disconnect between supporters and the players, but at Celtic the bond is stronger than most.

Bhoys fans will now be hoping to play their part over the rest of the campaign, as Ronny Deila's side aim to compete the domestic treble.

Celtic have only managed the feat three times before in their history, but they seem in with a good chance of doing so this year and the Bhoys fans will be hoping to cheer their side over the line.
