SKIPPER Scott Brown, who was excellent in last night’s 2-0 win over St Johnstone, is on the brink of signing a new deal that will see him end his playing career at Celtic, as CQN reported yesterday.
And boss Brendan Rodgers predicted the next move for the 33-year-old midfielder who has been at the Hoops since ex-gaffer Gordon Strachan signed him in a £4.4million deal from Hibs in 2007.
Brown has knocked back a dream deal to move to Australia and will agree a two-year extension at Parkhead which will put him in the position of potentially being captain in an unprecedented and magical 10-in-a-row in the club’s history, live casino would take odds against it, as would casino bonus.
Rodgers reckons his talismanic onfield leader will then head straight into a coaching role with the club.
The Irishman said: “I don’t believe anything is finalised. He is very happy here and we have given him the time.
“Scott is back to fitness and it would be brilliant for the club, his team-mates and me if he stays.
“He has been a brilliant captain and, hopefully, he will sign.
“Scott could be a coach here in the future. There will always be a role here, it just depends how far he wants to go into it.
“But to have that quality of person and his leadership, once his time is done as a player, the club will want to maximise that and nurture him as a coach.”
