The worst kept secret at Celtic Park last night was that captain Scott Brown would sign a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2021 – potentially ‘Here for 10-in-a-row’. Scott is already one of the most successful Celtic players of all time. He became the third captain to lead the team to the treble and the first Scottish club captain to retain a treble.
His contribution going forward will be less than that which has already past, but his influence on discipline among the squad, at and beyond training, should not be underestimated. He is a leader and a winner, and will ensure standards do not slip.
I know the day is getting on, but work is still going on.
