LEIGH GRIFFITHS reckons Celtic skipper Scott Brown has been the team’s outstanding player this season.
The striker, who hopes to lead the line against Hamilton at Parkhead tonight, said: “Scott has been magnificent.
“He is head and shoulders above everyone in the squad. He could play anywhere just now and if he was to be asked to play at left-back, as striker, as a central defender, he would give his all for this team.
“He has always played a captain’s role since I have been in this team, but he has been untouchable on the park for us this season.
“He’s been immense and he deserves a lot of credit for that.”
Griffiths also praised Brown’s midfield partner Stuart Armstrong who has been reviltalised since Brendan Rodgers arrived in the summer.
Last season’s 40-goal man said: “Stuart has had a new lease of life and he is like a Duracell bunny; he just never runs out of energy.
“He has been great and I would argue that he is one of the players of the season, even at this early stage.
“There has been talk of him getting a Scotland call-up and in my opinion he deserves that. He has been great and he is chipping in with good goals.
“That is the Stuart Armstrong that we saw at Dundee United and that is the reason why he was brought here.
“The Celtic fans are getting the chance to see the real Stuart Armstrong now and that is brilliant to see because he had to wait for his chance, as well.
“It just shows what can happen if you get a run of games.”
