Tam McManus has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Hibernian midfielder John McGinn would be a good long-term replacement for Scott Brown at Celtic.

Brown is one of the best midfielders in Scotland and has been on the books of Celtic since the summer of 2007 when he joined from Hibernian for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £4.4 million.

The Scotland international is going strong despite being 32 years of age and remains a key figure at Celtic Park.

John McGinn of Hibernian scores during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Celtic and Hibernian at Celtic Park Stadium on September 30, 2017 in Glasgow, Scotland.

However, time will come soon for Celtic to start thinking about finding a long-term replacement for Brown.

Former Hibernian forward McManus, 36, has suggested that McGinn would be a good long-term replacement for Brown at Celtic.

McManus made the comments on Twitter following Hibs’ 2-2 draw with Celtic away from home at Celtic Park in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.

Former St. Mirren youngster McGinn, 22, scored both the goals for Neil Lennon’s team against Brendan Rodgers’s side.

McGinn, though, could cost Celtic a lot of money, with Hibernian manager Lennon telling The Scottish Sun that he is now worth more than £5 million.
