It was only two weeks ago Scott Brown was signed by Aberdeen for next season.
It now looks like Celtic are closing in on their new manager and for all the speculation, it looks like it will be Eddie Howe.
It seems really strange nobody at the club could give Scott a heads up that a deal could be close or is getting there with a new man before making his decision.
Instead, Scott was unsure of his own position in any new regime and couldn’t keep Stephen Glass waiting.
It’s left a scenario where Brown is probably leaving a season too early when you think of all the upheaval.
Some might think a clean break is the best thing for everyone but when you lose such a monumental figure from the dressing room, it has an impact.
There’s no telling if Eddie Howe or any other manager would have liked to keep Scott on but the option would have been handy.
The way it stands now, we need to replenish talent as well as dressing room leaders.
