With a three-pronged strikeforce costing more than ₤ 400million in the shape of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and also Kylian Mbappe, Brown admits PSG are amongst the best teams he has dealt with.

The cash-laden French side won 5-0 at Parkhead in their opening group game as well as have actually since racked up 12 goals without reply in their following 3 video games, versus Bayern Munich and two times against Anderlecht.

Brown as well as goalkeeper Craig Gordon were crossed out prior to encountering the similarity David Trezeguet, Patrick Vieira as well as Claude Makelele a decade back, just for James McFadden to stun the hosts and the rest of the globe.

And the midfielder firmly insists Celtic can do the same versus Unai Emery’s side on Wednesday.

“They are absolutely up there,” the 32-year-old stated. “When they were playing one-touch football in their own box when we were pressing them with five men, it reveals the self-confidence they are playing with and also it reveals what the supervisor intends to do as well.

“We most likely have to play one of the best games of our lives to obtain something. We have to defend better as a group and be a lot more aggressive in the tackle.

“I think we maybe revealed them a little too much respect in the very first game and also allow them dictate just what they did at Celtic Park. That’s not like us to be truthful.

“Nobody on the planet anticipates us to obtain a lead to Paris however you never recognize. Last time I mored than there I obtained an outcome with Scotland so you never recognize exactly what could happen.

“It was 10 years ago, I remained in my prime then! Me as well as Craigy (Gordon) were mentioning it and also half the lads in the team really did not actually remember the video game or keep in mind that we played.

“But to do the double-header against France back then was amazing due to the fact that they were one of the most effective teams on the planet at the time and we managed it home and also away so you never ever know just what can take place.”

Brown was speaking after opening up a brand-new artificial pitch in Cardenden in memory of fellow Fife indigenous John Thomson, the goalkeeper that played more than 200 ready Celtic prior to dying aged 22 after suffering a head injury in an Old Firm video game in 1931.

“It suggests a great deal because when we were maturing we utilized to play in the field across from your house and also it would certainly be soaking wet, no goals, and also somebody would swipe the internet if you put them up,” he claimed.

“It’s safe and secure for the kids and also has lights too, which readies since it’s basically dark below all the time.

“It’s fantastic to offer something back to the youngsters and to do it for John Thomson since he is a hero round below.”
