Scott Brown was brilliant for Celtic against Fenerbahce

The Celtic star put in a fine performance in the Europa League.

Celtic saw a two-goal lead lost with strikes either side of half-time as Ronny Deila’s men could only draw 2-2 with Fenerbahce in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

Celtic went ahead through the in-form Lee Griffiths and when Kris Commons doubled the Bhoys’ advantage just four minutes later they looked on for a famous victory.

But Fenerbahce had other ideas and Fernandao scored in the 43rd and 48th minutes to ultimately give the visitors a share of the spoils.

Despite that blow Celtic could be proud of many of their players’ efforts, with skipper Scott Brown standing out in the centre of the park.

The 30-year-old had a fine game, finishing it with a passing accuracy of 96.1 per cent from a total of 76 passes.

Brown also played one key pass, seven accurate long balls from every single effort of that type, and he was dispossessed just once all evening.

In short, Brown was a rock for Celtic and he deserved to be on the winning side, driving the team on and going on three dribbles as he attempted to ensure one point became three.
