Celtic bossNeil Lennonhas hailed Scott Brown as ‘inspirational’ after the skipper secured a late 2-1 win for his side against Hamilton.
Brown grabbed a dramatic stoppage time goal after Hamilton’s Marios Ogkmpoe cancelled out Ryan Christie’s opener with minutes remaining.
And the Hoops manager says he is running out of ways to describe his captain after his heroics against Hamilton.
He said: “I’m running out of superlatives for him, but big players make the difference in big games and he continually is a big player for us.
“Inspirational and he’s sent the fans home happy. He’s just a modern day great like I’ve always said and he just keeps churning out magnificent performances for us. “
The Hoops now head into Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final against Rangers and Lennon says his side are motivated to win their first piece of silverware this season.
The Northern Irishman also provided an update on the injured Odsonne Edouard, who missed the Accies clash, and is a doubt for the Hampden fixture.
He added: “I’m delighted and we can park that now and look forward to Sunday. We’re in great form, that’s 11 wins in a row so all the juices and all the instincts will be kicking in over the next few days.
“We’ll be really motivated and really up for it.
“Jonny, Moi and Boli. They’ll train tomorrow. We’ve been monitoring Odsonne day to day and we’re giving him every chance.
“Well he’s not training tomorrow, he’s going to do some work with the physios and we’ll take it from there.”
