SCOTT BROWN has revealed he’s going to do his coaching badges but admitted it might just be a couple more years off before he fully concentrates on the off-field side of the game.
The Celtic captain has told the fans he’s ready to sign a new deal with the club which will keep him at Celtic Park for the next two years at least but he also revealed he’s held talks with Rodgers and Celtic chief Peter Lawwell about starting his coaching career at the club.
Brown is a leader on the pitch and it’s only natural the double treble captain would go into coaching.
Brow has played under Gordon Strachan, Neil Lennon and Brendan Rodgers at the club – three very different styles but all winners.
There is a massive chance that Brown becomes Celtic boss in the future. He has spent over ten years at the club and nobody would bat an eye lid when the time comes.
Speaking about the coaching side of things, Brown is ready to get his badges Brown told The Sun: “Myself, the gaffer and Peter Lawwell have been chatting and it seems to have gone well. I am just concentrating on playing right now.
“I’ll go and do my coaching badges in the summer, but I’ll see how long my legs last before I think about moving upstairs.
“It’s a great honour to have been playing at Celtic for so long and for them to be helping me out with a coaching role, whether it’s Under-16s or whatever.
“It’s an exceptional place to get a start. I’ve learned a lot under the manager here and the previous managers.
“I’m still playing so I’ve not thought about managing Celtic one day! You never know. The gaffer has set a great standard here and I still have a lot to learn.
“I’m learning every day, from his sessions, the way he deals with situations, the media, public, everything. It’s all first class.
“That’s why he has the reputation of being a top manager.”
