Scott Brown has overtaken Neil Lennon’s trophy haul at Celtic after winning his 17th major honour with the Hoops.

The former Scotland star came on as a sub as Brendan Rodgers’ side beat Aberdeen to lift the Betfred Cup as the former Liverpool boss won his seventh trophy out of seven as Celtic manager.
