Fans react as Scott Brown says ‘never say never’ when asked about Scotland Euro 2020 return

The Celtic skipper is currently retired from international football.

Scott Brown refused to definitively rule out a return to international football if Scotland qualify for Euro 2020, as per the Scottish Sun.

Brown emphasised the need to look after his own fitness during the regular season but said ‘never say never’ when asked about the prospect of ending his international retirement.

He said: “They still have two games to get through but you never say never. It would be phenomenal to get to a finals after 22 years. Football’s a funny game and you never know. It’s been hard for me to watch the Scotland games because you always want to be playing in them.

“I need to look after number one though. My wish is I could still be playing for Celtic and Scotland at the age of 45. But there comes a time when you have to make sure your body’s okay and give yourself the best chance of continuing to play for your club.”

Some Celtic fans may feel that Brown made it clear there his commitments lie with Celtic but he passed up the chance to definitively close the door on his international career.

And plenty of fans on Twitter made it clear that they wouldn’t welcome Brown back into the international setup purely for a tournament that he would have played no part in qualifying for.
