Even as they prepare to empty their lockers at Murray Park the shadow of Scott Brown hangs heavily over Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.
Another trophy-less season is drawing to a close with just the endurance of tonight’s Farewell Party (copy-rite Daily Record) to be endured before both players can finally escape.
When Brown left Celtic he had 10 SPL/SPFL winners medals in his holdall alongside six from the League Cup and six from the Scottish Cup to go with the League Cup medal he earned at Hibs.
Even after leaving the hoops Brown remained on the job, drawing twice last season for Aberdeen as Celtic took the SPFL title by four points from Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s European heroes.
Alfie will leave with one SPFL medal while Kent can better than with the addition of a Scottish Cup medal, similar to a dozen or so St Johnstone players.
Another comparison is Alistair Johnston, Celtic’s Canadian Soccer Guy. After 18 appearances he has one winners medal, over the next two Saturday’s he could add two more to surpass the totals of the departing Ibrox heroes.
Fleetwood won’t feature in their future plans with Kent expected to be off to Turkey with either Colombia or Mexico the next destination for Morelos.
Scott Brown won more trophies in 1 season at Celtic than Ryan Kent and Alfredo Morelos did in their whole Rangers career… ? pic.twitter.com/saNwjcjcZW
