FORMER Celtic skipper Scott Brown has returned to training – with Dunfermline.

The 36-year-old Hoops hero, who became a free agent when his Aberdeen contract was scrapped 12 days ago, enjoyed a stint at the East End Park club and watched their 1-1 draw with Morton on Friday night.

Broony has remained close friends with former Hibs team-mate Steven Whittaker, who is now on the coaching staff with the Championship outfit.

An invite was extended for the much-decorated Celt, who won an astonishing 22 honours during his 14 years at Parkhead, to take part in a session with the club last week which he was delighted to accept, according to the Dundee Courier.

CALMAC v BROONY…pals Callum McGregor and Scott Brown clash during Celtic’s 3-2 win at Pittodrie last month.

Although Broony lives in Edinburgh, he hails from Hill of Beath and still has family in Fife.

He is weighing up his next career move and had been linked with the St Mirren manager’s job before ex-Motherwell gaffer Stephen Robinson landed the post.

Ange Postecoglou has already stated there will “always be an open door” for the former midfielder at Parkhead, as CQN reported.

Broony left the Hoops when his contract expired last summer to join up with another one-time Easter Road colleague Stephen Glass at Pittodrie on a two-year player-coach deal.

However, Glass was sacked after the Dons were knocked out of the Scottish Cup at Fir Park last month and ex-Paisley chief Jim Goodwin took over the dug-out role at the north-east club.

Former Celtic defender John Hughes, who is now in charge at the Fifers, will accommodate the 55 times-capped Scotland international skipper for training sessions at the club, but there is unlikely to be any permanent switch to the Fifers in any capacity.
