Celtic were put through their paces on an icy Friday morning ahead of Sunday's League Cup final with Motherwell at Hampden Park.

Brendan Rodgers's side braved the freezing temperatures in their second training session since losing 7-1 to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Very little warmed the heart that night and most Celtic players elected to combat the chill with wintery garments in today's training - snoods, gloves, hats, long-sleeved jackets.

Most of them - including Rodgers - were dressed for Siberian weather, but one man refused.

Scott Brown, criticised for his performance by Scott McDonald and Paul Lambert in Paris, dressed like it was July as 'Broony' turned up in a t-shirt, minus the hat and gloves - a decision which spoke volumes for his personality.

It's that sort of attitude which has seen Brown become an icon at Parkhead and he will do his utmost to lead Rodgers's side to another trophy at Hampden this weekend.
