The midfielder unfortunately missed out on a playing return in Sunday's friendly at Bramall Lane because of a knee injury.
But the former Blades favourite was certainly centre of attention from the rousing applause he received from home fans as he stepped off the bus to a standing ovation as he was introduced the the crowd at half-time.
"It was great to be back and to get such a warm reception from the fans," said Brownie, whose form in four years at United earned his move to Spurs. "It was just a shame I wasn't able to play.
"It was a game I'd been looking forward to for a while but it was a fantastic return for me nevertheless.
"Basically I've been stepping up my work today (Monday). Rangers might be too early for me but I'm looking to get back into action at the weekend."
We travel to Glasgow and a clash with Rangers on Wednesday before a trip to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
Michael Brown admitted he was touched by the reception he received on his return to Sheffield United - and that he hopes to be back in action next weekend.
