It is a scary thought but Celtic came close last season to losing their captain Scott Brown to a new club based in Australia.
This was not just some pie in the sky transfer bid, the Celtic skipper gave it some very serious thought before he eventually decided against it and signing a two-year contract extension with the champions.
Broony just took to his Instagram to wish Western United and ex-teammate Scott McDonald all the best with their new season.
With so many people so quick to write Brown off when he has one bad game the majority of Celtic fans will be glad he still togs out in Hoops and not stripes after Scott Brown won the league at Rugby Park.
Brown is good enough to take the blame when a result does not go Celtic’s way to keep the heat of his teammates like a true captain. Some fans have joked that on their captains Instagram post that he is keeping his place at Western warm for when he completes the ten.
