Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass is confident that former Celtic captain Scott Brown will have no mixed emotions coming up against the side he featured in for 14 years.
As quoted by the Press and Journal, Glass insisted that the 36-year old won’t be fazed by facing off against his old side at Pittodrie come Sunday, as both sides head into the fixture needing a result after a poor run of form.
He said: “It means nothing different to Scott – he is an Aberdeen player and is desperate to win this game.
“Since he has come in, he has been the same, so he won’t do anything different.
“However it will maybe show people his determination when they see Scott’s demeanour in trying to win this game.
“People maybe feel that in the back of his mind he still has that feeling for Celtic, which I’m sure there’s something there.
“But the thing Scott has got, bigger than anything, is the desire to win football matches.
“This weekend, you won’t see any mixed emotions from Scott.
“I don’t think the Celtic fans and players will expect any different just as we didn’t last year knowing he was coming.”
As the games go on this season, it seems to be becoming a bit more normal not seeing Brown standing in the Hoops midfield or leading the side out.
That being said, it will still be bizarre to see him in the red of Aberdeen for the first time against Celtic this weekend.
We all know well how significant a factor our ex-captain can be in these sorts of big games where a result is needed. So, it is crucial that we win the battle in the midfield and across the park to take home our first three points on the road this season.
