Scott Brown shares when he plans to meet with new Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers has been announced as Celtic's new manager.

Scott Brown has revealed to Celtic’s official site that he intends to meet with Brendan Rodgers when he is back to full fitness.

Rodgers has recently been appointed as Celtic’s new manager, and there is great excitement about the former Liverpool boss’s arrival at Parkhead.

Rodgers is a high profile addition for the Bhoys, and he is expected to be an upgrade on his predecessor, Ronny Deila.

Brown was a key player under Deila, and he wore the captain’s armband, but the midfielder has been out of action for much of the back end of the campaign.

Brown did not play in any of Celtic’s fixtures in May, but as soon as he is back fit again he intends to speak to Rodgers about his plans.

“I haven’t had a chance to speak to him yet but I’m sure we will chat soon, though he will be a busy man over the next few days,” Brown said.

“I will just need to see how the injury goes and how I’m feeling before I come back in. I don’t want to come back too early and start off with an injury, so I will make sure I’m 100 per cent.”

Rodgers’ arrival at Celtic has increased the levels of optimism around Parkhead for next season.

The Bhoys have won the last six Scottish Premiership titles, but with Rangers back in the top tier, they are likely to face more competition than in recent years, as they aim to make it seven in a row.
