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.
As it is, the botched attempt to sign the midfielder, who ended up signing for Aston Villa, underlines Brown’s importance.
That’s why his admission to the Daily Mail that contract talks are progressing well will be music to the ears of Celtic fans.
Yet, Brown also revealed that he is taking his coaching badges on the side and laid bare his ambition to be Celtic manager one day.
For such an inspirational figure, that feels like a natural progression. His latest arrangement at Parkhead looks likely to include a greater coaching role; although he insists it will not impact his playing prospects in the short term.
But this new deal should see Brown move one step closer to one day being Celtic boss. He would certainly bring his trademark passion and steel to the role; and the fans would love him.
He won’t be the next Celtic manager, but perhaps Brendan Rodgers could do worse than bring him onto the coaching team sooner rather than later…
