Brown moves closer to Celtic coaching role as new contract continue

Scott Brown’s influence at Celtic remains as strong as ever, even at the age of 33.

The signing of John McGinn in the summer would have perhaps begun the process of phasing Brown out; pushing him towards a more backroom role.

That’s why his admission to the Daily Mail that contract talks are progressing well will be music to the ears of Celtic fans.
