Celtic boss Ronny Deila raves about Scott Brown

Celtic manager Ronny Deila speaks highly of midfielder Scott Brown.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila has been singing the praises of Scott Brown in The Daily Record.

Deila rates the 30-year-old Scotland international central midfielder highly and has lavished him with praise.

"His (Brown's) two hamstrings have inflammation and need rest, there has been too much load over a long time,” the Norwegian told The Daily Record. "He was injured for three months at the beginning of the year and has pushed himself through a lot of games now and to get the best out of him for Celtic and for Scotland it is important now to give him a rest.

"He has been unbelievably important. On the pitch and in training he is unbelievable, he is always at 100 per cent.”

Brown is one of the best players at Celtic and is one of the best midfielders in the Scottish Premiership at the moment.

The former Hibernian star has been on the books of the Hoops since 2007 and has a contract until June 2018.

The Scotland international has struggled with injury problems this season, but he has always done the best he could.

Celtic are on the verge of winning the Scottish Premiership title this season, and Brown has played a key role in the success.

Deila’s side are at the top of the Scottish Premiership table at the moment with 80 points from 35 matches.

The Glasgow giants are nine points clear of Aberdeen, who are currently second in the standings. Celtic will take on Aberdeen at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday afternoon.
