Celtic journalist Michael Gannon has recently discussed Scott Brown’s upcoming Parkhead exit.
The latest episode of the Record Celtic podcast saw the panel speak about numerous issues involving the Bhoys ahead of the upcoming Old Firm derby.
Gannon talked about Scott Brown’s Parkhead exit and he believes that it is a ‘strange’ move for the Hoops veteran and he can’t get his around the fact that the Scotsman is joining Aberdeen in the summer.
Brown is set to become a player-coach at Pittodrie, joining Stephen Glass’ staff at the club. Glass and Brown have previously been teammates during their time at Hibernian. Brown was offered a one-year deal by Celtic, but he preferred joining Aberdeen instead.
Can Brown become a Celtic coach in the future?
Gannon made it clear that while he understands the reasoning behind Brown’s move, he can’t believe that the veteran will be playing against the Bhoys next season.
The journalist said: “I still can’t actually quite believe that he’s going to Aberdeen. I know we’ve written about it, thousands of words, but I still can’t get my head around the fact that he’s going to Aberdeen and he’ll be playing against Celtic next season. I can understand his reasoning behind it, but it’ll be strange to see him go.”
TIF Thoughts on Brown…
Since joining the club back in the summer of 2007, Brown has played as many as 608 appearances in all competitions for the Bhoys and he has captained the club multiple times and at various levels too.
During this period, he has won as many as ten Premiership titles and he’s won six Scottish Cups as well for the side. This has led to him becoming one of the most successful captains in the club’s history.
Considering the trophies he has won and the number of times he’s played, it would indeed be strange to see Brown play for another club and play against the Bhoys.
