Gary Mackay-Steven seems to rate Celtic teammate Scott Brown highly.

Celtic winger Gary Mackay-Steven has been singing the praises of teammate and club captain Scott Brown in The Daily Record.

Brown has been on the books of Scottish Premiership champions Celtic since 2007 and is one of the best central midfielders in entire Scotland.

“He is a big driving force at Celtic and the same is true with the national team,” Mackay-Steven told The Daily Record. “He can certainly play at that level for a good few more years in my opinion.

“He gives everything every single time he goes out on the park. He leaves nothing out there, whether it is with Celtic or Scotland.

“It is definitely big for him mentally and physically to play, week in, week out. But he is so good at what he does.”

Brown has been a driving force for Celtic for years, and he remains one of the most influential players in Ronny Deila’s team.

The 30-year-old is a leader for the Bhoys and is also a key player for the Scotland national football team.

Although Brown has spent his entire professional career in Scotland, he is good enough to play for a Premier League club.

Celtic are second in the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 23 points from 10 matches, just a point behind leaders Aberdeen.

The Hoops will take on Motherwell away from home at Fir Park in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
