In fact I would go as far to say that Larsson is quite easily the 2nd best Scandinavian to ever grace our game

Davis is obviously miles better than Brown.  The whole medals thing is a complete fallacy when you remember that Brown's medals are mostly hollow, given the fact that he played for a club with 10 times the budget of their nearest challenger for 6 years before Rangers were promoted to the Premiership, and even, Rangers were brutal for 2 years after that.

Davis played at a much higher level than Brown.

Steven Davis is a different type of player to Brown (definitely more technically gifted.)

I suppose you’d argue either way who’s better or more successful.

Ultimately the Green and the Blue won’t agree on it any way...

So lets argue about who the next Celtic  manager will be and why it’s going to be two years before we challenge for the title again.

OK then. Henrik Larsson stayed at Celtic for 7 years (your argument was also league’s played in) is Davis better than him too :lol: 

Larsson has been part of squads that have won domestic trophies in 5 countries (including 2 of the top 5 leagues), he’s played in and helped win a Champions League final, been runner up in a UEFA Cup Final, has played in 2 European Championships and 3 World Cups - you cannot compare his career to Scott Brown’s career.

Scott Brown in sevco's head again magic.

 

I was going to post about him being able to dish it out but not being able to take it back.  I'd better not do that now, thanks Willie for setting me straight here.

I agree completely. I was more making the point to G51 that you can be an outstanding player while staying at Celtic for a long period of time without moving to EPL dross.
 Not to say Brown is outstanding, but neither is Davis.

Nobody has said either of them are.

I realise that. I just meant it was a tad sacreligious of me to mention them in the same breath as Larsson in the first place.

Today I have discovered that people actually believe what Keith Jackson says on here whilst the young forever blueco chap appears to have discovered some old firm classics reels on skysports. I think he has had the better day tbh.

Can’t really blame the guy for not wanting to re-sign for the newco, even if Southampton got the rangers captain in the bargain bucket, think it improved his game moving down to England, came back a better player for it.

Saying all that, would still much rather have Brown as my captain.

Ah right - fair enough.

Brown has been a good captain for Celtic and is undoubtedly a very good player at Scottish Premiership level. It’s difficult to say any more than that though as he never had the opportunity to play in one of top 5 leagues.

It's amazing how blinkered some people are as to how mediocre a player Brown was. Had something about him at Hibs then decided to go to Celtic and stagnate instead of push himself.

Yeah he got a load of international caps, an unprecedented amount of trophies, captained the biggest club in Scotland for a decade, topped champions league stats but did he REALLY prove himself by going to some EPL yo yo team?

It's not even close between them, Davis is, was and forever will be the better of the two.

I dunno lads, maybe the reason Scott Brown had the most interceptions in the Champions League in 2016/17 is because opposition teams were pouring forward every other minute? idk
