But it's clear after this week that he still has a bit to learn about how to react when his side win a big game.
Scott got himself booked for his celebration in front of the Shakhter keeper after the third goal went in on Wednesday, then had a few less-than-gracious things to say about the Kazakh champions when he was interviewed in the mixed zone.
In essence, he claimed all they would have brought to the Champions League group stage was a long throw.
Now, I admit I am old school, and we didn't have to contend with mixed zones when I played.
But anything we might have had to say about our opponents was kept in the dressing room.
There is no need to make it public, and you don't want to hear a captain of Celtic be disrespectful to another team, no matter how much they might have got under his skin by what they have said or done.
Shakhter were cynical on Wednesday, and were clearly not as good a team as Celtic.
But like Scott and his team-mates, they had got to the play-offs by winning two qualifying rounds - one against BATE Borisov - and beat Celtic in the first leg.
The captain should have celebrated victory by focusing on what his side had achieved, not having a pop at the opposition.
