CELTIC legend Scott Brown has revealed his massive Ange Postecoglou regret.

The iconic Hoops captain, who won 22 honours in his 14-year career at Parkhead, reckons he quit the club too soon – just weeks before the arrival of the Greek-Australian manager as the successor to Neil Lennon.

Brown left at the completion of the dismal 2020/21 campaign – the team’s first trophyless term in 11 years – to link up with former Hibs team-mate Stephen Glass at Pittodrie.

However, the venture was doomed to failure and the rookie boss was sacked in February after the Dons had been knocked out of the Scottish Cup by Motherwell. The ex-Celtic onfield leader followed shortly afterwards.

Asked if he wished he had stayed to learn from Postecoglou, Brown, speaking to Sky Sports, answered: “One hundred percent, yeah. I went away to learn for myself in a different way to becoming an assistant manager at Aberdeen and learn my trade from there.

“But, yes, I would have loved to to have learned from Ange, as well. I didn’t know what Ange was going to be like at the time, what kind of football he was going to play.

“I was 36 at the time, so the chances of me getting involved [were uncertain]. I wanted to leave that season that season whether I won or didn’t. I had already made up my mind.”

Brown departed Fleetwood Town in September just over a year after his managerial appointment of the English third-tier side.
