Departing Celtic icon Scott Brown lined out for the Bhoys for the final time this afternoon, and couldn’t help but make use of the opportunity to aim a parting shot at rivals Rangers.

Light Blues rampant
Steven Gerrard’s Gers have of course enjoyed a historic campaign in the Scottish top-flight.
Amid a rare down season for Celtic, the Ibrox outfit took full advantage, en route to a first league title in a decade.
Not only that, but Rangers did it in style, racking up 102 points, on the back of a whopping 32 league victories.
🏆 We Are Rangers

In fact, the Light Blues managed to remain unbeaten across the entirety of the Scottish Premiership campaign, etching their names into the history books of European football as the latest member of the ‘invincibles’ club.
‘Treble after treble after treble’
The final round of fixtures in the Scottish top-flight, meanwhile, played out earlier this afternoon, with Rangers having capped off their campaign in style, courtesy of a 4-0 drubbing of Aberdeen.
Elsewhere, Glasgow rivals Celtic were held to a 0-0 stalemate by Hibernien, in an ‘end of an era’ outing for Scott Brown.
The Hoops legend is set for pastures new this summer, having agreed to take on a player-coach role with Aberdeen for the 2021/22 season.
In turn, Brown was inevitably drawn on the conclusion of a trophy-laden 14-year stint at Parkhead during his post-match interview on Saturday.
As outlined above, though, the midfielder couldn’t help but make use of the opportunity to aim a parting shot at Steven Gerrard and co. on the blue half of Glasgow.
Brown labelled the Celtic sides of years gone by ‘proper invincibles’, drawing attention to Rangers’ failure to add either the Betfred or Scottish Cup titles to their season haul:
‘I would rather be in my situation than anybody else’s.’
‘We’ve went proper Invincible throughout the whole season. We’ve done Treble after Treble after Treble and it’s not easy.’
The now ex-Celtic skipper continued:
‘It does take a toll on everyone’s body. That’s what’s happened this year.’
‘We gave it everything we could but we’ve just not managed to get that 10.’
