The Kazakhstans celebrated as though it was all over when they beat Celtic 2-0 last week and Brown savoured the chance to take his revenge last night.
As James Forrest netted a dramatic injury-time winner to send Celtic hurtling into the group stage of the lucrative competition, every player in the squad ran to celebrate with the winger.
But Brown stood in front of Shakhter keeper Aleksandr Mokin, inches from his face, and celebrated alone.
It earned the Scotland internationalist a booking, but one which he was happy to take. The midfielder's slate will be wiped clean in the group stage meaning he won't carry the indiscretion with him.
"I enjoyed it," he said. "They were happy to celebrate as though they'd won the tie last week so it was our turn this week.
"I thought they were an embarrassment, playing the way they did in both legs. I can't imagine them playing in the Champions League.
"They were happy for us to have all of the ball and I don't think anyone could question we were the better team over the two legs.
"We made chances, we tried to play and we proved we deserve to be in the Champions League.
"They said they were going to come here and score two goals but I don't think they had two shots on target," Brown continued.
"We are excited about the draw and who we might get. We don't fear anyone."
Celtic are set to confirm that Teemu Pukki and Nir Biton are on their way to the club but Brown would still like another few faces in before the closure of the window on Saturday night.
He said: "It gives you a boost when there is quality coming in, but we have a great bunch of lads and whoever comes in will learn we have a great spirit in the team and we fight for one another."
