Scott Brown believes Celtic have enjoyed a ‘phenomenal’ 2017 and he has hailed the leadership qualities of boss Brendan Rodgers.

The Bhoys won the domestic treble during the 2016-17 campaign, while they also beat their own 100-year-old unbeaten domestic record, extending it to 69 before they finally tasted defeat.

The Glasgow giants also made it through to the Champions League group stages for the second successive year and they have European football to look forward to in the New Year, as they will face Zenit St Petersburg in the Europa League.

Captain Brown played an integral role in all of Celtic’s triumphs throughout 2017 and he has described the club’s success as ‘phenomenal’. “It has been phenomenal,” said the 32-year-old midfielder.

“I’m enjoying my football and we have more belief in ourselves. The run that we went on to win the treble was fantastic.”

The Scotland international believes the Bhoys impressive 2017 has to be put down to the qualities of Rodgers, who has enjoyed unprecedented success since he took over the managerial reins during the summer of 2016.

He added: “Since the manager has come in he has been a breath of fresh air and with every game we seem to get better.”

Celtic will head into 2018 with an eight-point advantage at the top of the Scottish Premiership standings and they appear to be on course to claim a seventh successive top-flight title.
