The Celtic captain was seen having words following the final whistle with Shinnie who, speaking after the game about the challenges in the match, said: “what comes around goes around”.

In response, Brown, who picked up his Ladbrokes Premiership player of the year award at Lennoxtown, said: “It will take more than him to put me down. I had a wee chat, that was it.

“There has been a few attempts. People want to win. Graeme makes a late, late tackle and you can see why he is on 16/17 bookings this season.

“It has been a fantastic season. To play 60 games every season, let’s see how long I can do it for.

“I feel fit as I ever have done.

“I have stayed injury-free, lucky enough for me, there has been a couple of dodgy tackles here and there but I have managed to get through them and continue playing.”
