SCOTT Brown is set to make history tonight when he takes to the field for Celtic in their final Champions League group game against Anderlecht.

One more appearance in European football’s premier club competition will see the Hoops skipper leapfrog the legendary Kenny Dalglish and become the standalone record Scottish appearance holder in the competition and its predecessor the European Cup.

The full list includes a trio of Lisbon Lions, as well as three ex-Rangers players and Liverpool great Alan Hansen.

Stoke City midfielder Darren Fletcher is the only other player on the list who is still active, but his last Champions League appearance came for Manchester United in the 2013/14 season.

The figures don’t include other UEFA club competitions including the UEFA Cup/Europa League, Cup Winners’ Cup, Super Cup or Intertoto Cup.

They relate to the top appearances by a Scottish player in the premier competition in European club football, be it the European Cup or Champions League, and including qualifying matches.

Brown joined the Celts in 2007 from Hibernian and has featured in the group stage of the Champions League on five occasions, progressing to the last 16 twice.

Domestically, the 32-year-old has enjoyed huge success by collecting seven league title medals, three Scottish Cups and five League Cups during his time at Parkhead.
