SINCE first joining forces as manager and skipper at Celtic in 2010, Neil Lennon and Scott Brown have won a combined 28 trophies as coach and captain.

This incredible haul has called for many a party over the years and so, on both the Irishman and Scotsman’s birthdays today – the former turning 49, the latter 35 – here are five noteworthy occasions on which the pair have celebrated together over the last decade. 

At the end of his first full season in charge as permanent manager, Neil Lennon won his first trophy as Celtic boss - the 2011 Scottish Cup. Captained by Brown in centre midfield, the Hoops put three past Motherwell – courtesy a long-range thunderbolt from Man of the Match Ki Sung-yueng, a Stephen Craigan own goal, and a late Charlie Mulgrew strike - in a clinical and one-sided final on May 21, 2011. 

After narrowly missing out on the SPL league title at the end of the 2010/11 campaign, the Hoops clinched their first championship under Neil Lennon with a storming 6-0 victory over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on April 7, 2012. This league trophy marked the first of the current nine in-a-row run and Scott Brown’s first as captain.

Following a shock 2-0 first-leg defeat to Kazakhstani outfit Shakhter Karagandy in the play-off round of the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League, a last-minute James Forrest goal deep into second half injury time saw Celtic win 3-0 on home soil, and qualify for Europe’s top tournament for the second year running.

When Brendan Rodgers departed Paradise in February last year, Neil Lennon stood in on a moment’s notice. The Irishman’s return to the Celtic dugout was a successful one, as he guided his boyhood heroes over the line to clinch their eighth straight league championship, and win the Scottish Cup to secure the historic and unprecedented Treble Treble on May 25, 2019.  

They came. They saw. They conquered. On the same date Neil Lennon’s Celtic had toppled Barcelona seven years prior, the Hoops won on Italian soil for the first time in the club’s illustrious history. With goals from James Forrest and Olivier Ntcham on the night – the latter of which was scored in the 95th minute – this 2-1 win over Lazio in Rome goes down as one of Celtic’s greatest modern European victories.
