SIR Kenny Dalglish agrees with Celtic legend Bertie Auld on the future of Hoops skipper Scott Brown, as CQN reported last week.

The Lisbon Lion insisted the lure of captaining the Parkhead men to 10 successive Premiership titles would prove to be irresistible for the 33-year-old midfielder.

Brown, who cost £4.4million when former manager Gordon Strachan bought him from Hibs in 2007, is out of contract at the end of the season and he has been linked with teams in America and Australia.

Auld, 80, was in no doubt the club’s talismanic captain should remain and lead the team into the history books.

Celtic great Dalglish said: “My belief is that Brown will stay where he is to try to win as many more trophies with the club as possible.

“Scott already has eight SPFL championships under his belt, including skippering the club to this magnificent run of seven-in-a-row.

“Could the thought of making history and going all the way to 10 titles be enough to keep him where he is? I’d have to say ‘yes’ to that question.”

Brown will be a free agent when his contract expires in June, shortly after his 34th birthday.

There are reports Celtic are about to offer the former Scotland international, who won 55 caps for his country before retiring this season, a two-year deal.

The champions hope a deal can be finalised before the turn of the year.
