CELTIC skipper Scott Brown has been offered a TWO-YEAR deal by Aberdeen.
The Dons club have stepped up their bid to lure the Hoops star to Pittodrie to work as No.2 to new boss Stephen Glass, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.
Brown, who will be 36 in June, has a one-year contract on the table from the Parkhead club where he has won a phenomenal 22 honours since his £4.4million arrival from Hibs in 2007.
Pittodrie chiefs now hope to finalise an ambitious pre-contract deal for the veteran midfielder and chairman Dave Cormack has sanctioned a two-year offer for the former Scotland captain.
Brown will also be given the opportunity to carry on playing with the deal covering a player-coaching role.
The player has been targeted by his former Easter Road team-mate and personal friend Glass who succeeded Derek McInnes as the north east outfit’s new gaffer earlier this week.
The nine-in-a-row champions face a summer of upheaval with a lot of uncertainty which may edge Brown to looking elsewhere.
