Diego Maradona dies aged 60Diego Maradona: Images of a football iconThousands in Argentina pay respects to Maradona"We were in a strict straight line


We brushed one side of the pitch then turned and did the other side


I switched places with a friend as he was talking to the person on the left, so I told him to go to my left and I would go to the right." That decision would lead to Brown receiving the attention of the world"s media and a footballing legend just moments later

"I picked it up and it was the medallion


"I asked the groundsman if this is what they were looking for


Maradona came rushing over saying "thank you, thank you" and was calling me his friend


Then he lifted me up in front of all the cameras


I was a shy lad then and I was a bit mortified, I didn"t know what was going on


It was crazy." The World Cup winner wanted to reward Brown for his find and gave him some mementoes that still take pride of place at home


"He gave me his hat and gloves


I still have them," he said


"I got to present him a Celtic top as he was visiting Celtic Park


Celtic allowed me to do that given what had happened


Then Celtic gifted me my own Celtic top with the number 10 and Maradona on the back


"He was such a nice man


I didn"t spend a lot of time with him, but he was overjoyed that we had found the medallion


He only had good words to say." Brown admits that he did not fully appreciate his brief encounter with one of the world"s greatest ever players


He said: "I think I was too young


As I got older, it dawns on you how much of a legend he was


At the time I was shocked at what was going on


I was more in awe of the players on the pitch but, looking back on it now, I realise how much of a hero he was." After the news of the Argentine"s death broke on Wednesday, Brown has been asked to recall his story from that night at Celtic Park


Brown, now 25, is preparing for Alloa"s League Cup tie with Hearts this weekend, and while saddened at the news of his passing, he can only smile when he recalls the moment in the limelight he shared with Maradona, who called him his friend


"I am lucky that I was there, and I was the lucky one out of the boys to find the medallion and get some attention out of it," he said


"It"s an amazing story


Whenever anyone asks me, I tell them in a heartbeat


"I was not really smiling in the photos


I wish I had a smile on my face, but I can look back on that and it will always be with me


We were all aspiring to be this legend of football when we were young


"I can look back on the photos and footage and say I had met the greatest footballer of all time."
