Scott Brown picks out the one ex-Celtic player he would bring back

Celtic Park

The Bhoys skipper has been discussing his favourite Celtic players from over the years.

Celtic captain Scott Brown says Shunsuke Nakamura is the one player he would bring back to Parkhead.

Indeed, when asked if there was one man Brown would take back to Celtic, he quickly replied with the 37-year-old's name.

The skipper praised his skill, work-rate and suggested he was a 'fantastic' player.

Nakamura is certainly well remembered by Celtic fans and several of his free-kicks will live on in Hoops history.

Brown, meanwhile, also discussed the best opponent he has ever faced and he picked two of the biggest names in recent footballing history.

Barcelona's Andres Iniesta was one and Andre Pirlo the other. While one would break free of his opponents, the other could simply out-pass anyone.

Celtic face Hamilton at Parkhead in their next Scottish Premiership clash on Saturday afternoon and are seven points clear of second-placed Aberdeen heading into the game.

With Europa League failure now past them, the Bhoys will no doubt look to run away with the league title to give them the best possible chance of concentrating on their cup games, thereby giving Ronny Deila the best possible chance of winning his first treble.
