The opposition raise their game when up against Scott Brown, as they did when facing Steven Gerrard, according to celtic boss Brendan Rodgers ahead of Sunday's clash with Hearts.
Rodgers worked with Gerrard at Liverpool and he made favourable comparisons with the former Liverpool captain and Brown, whom he claimed had bossed fellow Scotland international John McGinn in last weekend's 2-2 draw with Hibernian at Easter Road.
"[Scott] Browny always invites that because of the type of player he is," said Rodgers. "I seen it over many years, seen it working with Steven Gerrard. Every player that came up against Steven would raise their game 10 to 15 per cent because they are up against a top player and Browny has the same up here.
"Every week, every player who comes up against him knows how good he is so they always see it as a real test. Whether is it the young guy at Hearts or some of the other players, Browny faces that every week.
"That's why it's remarkable how well Scott Brown has done here because of the challenge he has had for the last 10-plus years of everyone that he is up against.
