Scott Brown's new deal with Celtic has given a massive boost to the players says Adam Matthews.

The 26-year old midfielder has agreed to remain at Parkhead until 2015 and Welsh youngster Matthews has welcomed the news.

"It's given us all a massive boost. He really is Mr Celtic, he lives and breathes it," he told the Evening Times.

"When he's playing, everyone just seems to add an extra 10 per cent, so it's a huge plus that he's signed a new contract."
