SCOTT BROWN has revealed he is already missing Celtic after leaving Parkhead last summer following 14 eventful years at the club.
The 36-year-old midfielder moved to Aberdeen to team up with his friend and former Hibs team-mate Stephen Glass on two-year player-coach role.
However, Brown moved on from the Pittodrie club in March when the Dons manager was sacked after the club crashed out of the Scottish Cup following a 2-1 loss to Motherwell at Fir Park the previous month.
The 55 times-capped Scotland international was given a proper send-off to his playing career by Celtic who put together an emotional video tribute to their legendary onfield leader who won 10 titles among his 22 honours at the club he joined in 2007 when Gordon Strachan spent a Scottish record £4.4million to lure him from Easter Road.
Brown responded to the gesture of his former club and, writing on Twitter, said: “Thank you @celtic for everything will miss they days! Lovely words from the lads.”
The middle-of-the-park warrior made 620 appearances for the Hoops and announced his decision to quit playing at the weekend.
He has already been linked with the vacant post at hometown club Raith Rovers who are on the look-out for a successor to John McGlynn who has agreed a move to League One Falkirk.
