Celtic media roundup: Scott Brown update, Craig Gordon comments on Chelsea interest

The latest media stories surrounding Scottish champions Celtic this Saturday morning.

Scott Brown

Celtic will stand by skipper Scott Brown after he was pictured on the floor outside a strip club on a night out - a story that was then covered on the front page of the Scottish Sun.

According to both the Scotsman and the Scottish Daily Mail, the Bhoys will take no action against their captain ahead of their League Cup final against Dundee United this Sunday afternoon and will stand by Brown despite his behaviour.

Celtic themselves have declined to publicly comment but are understood not to have chosen to discipline their skipper, although concern has been cast over whether Brown is really following the Ronny Deila philosophy of being a '24-hour athlete.'

Craig Gordon

Meanwhile, Celtic's 32-year-old goalkeeper Craig Gordon has been discussing Chelsea's rumoured interest in him, according to the Scotsman.

Gordon says there have been no discussions over a new contract with Deila's side just yet but says he is very happy at Parkhead.

He does admit he would be happy to return to England if the opportunity did arise at some point in the future, however.

“There have been no discussions yet over a new contract at Celtic but I’m very happy, whatever happens,” said the Bhoys shot stopper.

"I saw the stuff about Chelsea. I don’t know anything about it but I saw it. It is flattering but I’ll just concentrate on what I’m doing at Celtic and we will see what happens after that. Do I have unfinished business in England? It doesn’t really bother me.

“If England happens again, then great. If not, it’s not something that will worry me in the slightest."
