Scott Brown is concentrating on bringing more success to Celtic after admitting to a mistake in behaviour ahead of the League Cup final triumph.

The captain was photographed by a newspaper last week apparently drunk and eating junk food on a night out.

"I don't think I'm the first player to make a mistake and probably won't be the last," he told the Celtic View.

"I've spoken to the manager, it's been dealt with and now all I'm doing is moving on."

Manager Ronny Deila referred to the matter as a "small mistake" in the build-up to Sunday's 2-0 win over Dundee United on Sunday, with Brown leading the team and lifting the trophy at Hampden.

"I'm sure the club, the manager and the fans know that my total focus will always be on the matches coming up and nothing else but winning for Celtic," the midfielder added.

"It was a real honour as captain to lift the League Cup on Sunday and we now want to push on and try and bring our fans even more success this season. That's all we're thinking about."

Celtic take on Dundee United again on Wednesday in a Scottish Cup quarter-final replay, while they enjoy a three-point lead in the Premiership title race.
