Celtic's Scott Brown wants Gordon Strachan to remain in charge of Scotland

The Celtic man has been talking about his international boss.

Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has been speaking to the BBC about his hopes for current Scotland boss Gordon Strachan.

Brown and his countrymen saw their hopes of qualifying for Euro 2016 end after their 2-2 draw with Poland last week.

Scotland looked set for a huge victory only for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski to continue his outstanding recent form, completing his brace with a last-minute equaliser.

Scotland now face Gibraltar in something of a dead-rubber but the Celtic skipper has made his feelings clear regarding the current man in charge.

When asked if he wanted Strachan to stay on, Brown told the BBC, “Of course, he is a great manager. He’s been huge for me at club level and huge for me at international level as well.”

Brown has played 41 matches for Scotland to date and he has a total of 335 appearances for Celtic, during which time he has scored 34 goals and provided 50 assists.

This season Brown has already featured 16 times for Celtic as he bids to help them replicate their brilliant form last season, at the end of which they secured a league and cup double.

But whatever happens domestically, it is clear the Bhoys skipper wants to see his international boss stay on…although only time will tell.
