Celtic captain Scott Brown will bring down the curtain on a glittering trophy-filled Celtic career at the end of this season. Brown will move to Aberdeen as a player-coach with the newly appointed Dons management team.
While Celtic fans expected a major clearout this summer and an even bigger rebuild, nobody would have had any notion of Broony to Aberdeen. Since the news midweek, everyone has had their say and everyone agrees that the midfield general will be hard if not impossible to replace in just one season.
The latest to have his say is Celtic and Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish when he spoke to The Sunday Post.
“I have to say Scott’s departure from Celtic will be a huge loss to the club. He will be sorely missed, I’m sure. Scott has been a brilliant servant and served the club with distinction.”
“When he walks into the Pittodrie dressing room he will get instant respect for what he has achieved as a player. But he will also have to show what he is all about as a coach. In that respect, he is starting from scratch.”
Scott Brown is a natural-born leader and winner, we reckon he has all the attributes to be a top coach excluding experience, but he has to start somewhere. Most Celts thought that the coaching role would be at Celtic Park next season and hopefully, from a Celtic perspective, we don’t live to regret that.
