The former Dons defender wrote a derogatory tweet about the ex-Celtic captain.

Shay Logan has criticised Scott Brown pictured in an Aberdeen shirt and tweeted: "You can't polish a turd".

The former Celtic captain joined the Pittodrie club on a free transfer this summer as player/coach to Dons boss Stephen Glass.

The 35-year-old midfielder modelled the Aberdeen top as the Granite City club launched their new home kit on social media.

Under the photo of Brown in the red shirt on Aberdeen's official Twitter account, former Dons defender Logan, replied: "What's the saying, you can't polish a turd," which was followed by a 'pile of poo' and 'tears of joy' emojis.

In 2014, Brown and Celtic backed Aleksandar Tonev when then Aberdeen right-back Logan accused the Celtic player of racial abuse with the Bulgarian consequently banned for seven matches.

After joining Hearts until the end of the season in April, Logan insisted that there was ill-feeling between him and Brown over the incident.

He said: "It's not that we didn't get on – he played for Celtic, I played for Aberdeen, there was rivalry on the pitch. He wanted to win, I wanted to win."

Logan recently poked fun at Celtic's ongoing pursuit of a new manager on his Twitter account, with a mocked-up photo of him holding a green and white scarf above his head at Parkhead and saying: "Thought I'd make my first role in management a small one and build it up from there. I can't say I'm happy for the role but hey a job's a job no one else wanted it."

On his official Instagram account, Brown wrote: "So the new beginning starts as player/coach at @aberdeenfc

"I'm looking forward to the challenges in front of us all. Also I can't wait to get fans back into the stadiums."

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
