Celtic's Scott Brown: I don’t see myself anywhere else

Scott Brown has signalled his intention to stay at Celtic until the end of his career whilst outlining his aim to win 10 in-a-row.

Celtic skipper Scott Brown has told the Daily Record he wants to win 10 titles in a row and he can’t see himself playing anywhere but Celtic Park.

Brown secured his fifth title without kicking a ball on Saturday afternoon as Aberdeen failed to win their game against Dundee United, and now attention has turned to the future.

The Scotland international is contracted to Celtic until 2018 and says he still has the energy to play well into his 30s, stating that he’s got seven or eight years of football left in him.

The 29-year-old is looking to pick up plenty of trophies during that time – with the aim winning 10 titles in-a-row – but Celtic’s captain has a surefire way of knowing when his time is up.

“Once Craigy Gordon starts sprinting past me then that’s when I know that I have to chuck it,” he joked.

“I don’t see myself anywhere else. The club has been great to me, Peter Lawwell has been great to me and the managers of the past too as well as the current one.

“It feels like home. It’s a place I enjoy coming to and I love playing in front of those fans.”

Brown has been a key figure at Celtic Park since his move from Hibernian in 2007, and has dominated the midfield alongside Nir Bitton this season, with the pair likely to be influential again in the next campaign.

The long season for Brown, who has made 50 appearances for club and country isn’t quite over, with a crucial qualifying game against the Republic of Ireland in June as well as a friendly against Qatar, which he is a near certainty to be involved in.
