The Hoops beat Motherwell 2-0 in Sunday's League Cup final for what was the 32-year-old's 14th major title since joining Celtic back in 2007.

Understandably, Brown and team-mates Kieran Tierney and Patrick Roberts were out celebrating the success when the trio bumped into none other than Neil Lennon.

The former Hoops boss, who managed Brown, was at Hampden Park in his role as a pundit on BT Sport and the Celtic captain made sure he took a photograph of the chance encounter.

Lennon and Brown were once bitter rivals on the field when the latter was at Hibernian, but a successful player-manager relationship at Parkhead has seen the duo develop an affection for one another.

Current Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers will hope that Brown and his other players did not go overboard in their celebrations as the Scottish champions face Motherwell again on Wednesday, this time in a Scottish Premiership meeting at Fir Park.
