John Hartson insistsIS a legend at Celtic - and says Charlie Nicholas is "at it" by claiming otherwise.
Brown will leavein the summer having spent the last 14 years at Parkhead.
He's won ten league titles including a storied Nine in a Row and he has been the face of the club during a hugely successful era at Parkhead.
He is a legend in the eyes of the fans, but former Hoops strikerraised the ire when he said the outgoing captain is undeserving of that tag.
He wrote in his Express column: "Scott Brown will be easy to replace on the field for Celtic. All this 'legend' talk is nonsense.

The pundit was left fuming after watching his old side take a battering at Ibrox in the final derby of the season. The midfielder lifted 22 trophies in his time with the club, and played his final derby with Rangers on Sunday.
"A legend should have been the best ever player in a position or be remembered for doing something great like the Lisbon Lions."
Butreckons those claims are no more than a cheap attempt at a wind-up.
He says Brown should be considered a legend at Celtic Park - and there's no other word for it.
Hartson told: "I think Charlie's at it. What have you got to do to become a legend?
"He's made over 600 appearances for Celtic. He's won ten league titles, 22 trophies and he captained the quadruple Treble in the last four years.
"I just don't know where Charlie is coming from there, I really don't. I think he's just trying to noise people up."
