BRENDAN RODGERS reckons skipper Scott Brown can become a future Celtic manager.

The Hoops boss said of his 32-year-old midfielder: “I don’t see any reason why not.

“His legs are still strong, he is still looking after himself and this season he has won everything, every award going, and he has more years left.

“But there is no doubt, if he wants to go down that route he will need to go away, do his qualifications and study and get his experiences.

“He has a great history here, but he knows if he goes into management it is a different sport, you leave your medals and Cups at the door as it is a different game.

“But I am sure that later in life that is something that he can head towards. The likes of Neil Lennon and Billy McNeill did it here and other players, so I am sure he would like to follow in their footsteps.”

The Irishman revealed: “When I first came in he was coaching here and I told him that if he had no plans to retire soon to step out of it.

“I felt it was eating too much into his time as a player. So, he has come away from that.”
