Celtic midfielder comments on his future

Scott Brown says that he wants to remain at Celtic until the end of his current contract at least.

Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has told The Glasgow Evening Times that he wants to remain at the club for the remainder of his contract.

The 30-year-old Scotland international has been on the books of Celtic since 2007 and has a contract until June 2018.

The former Hibernian star is one of the most important players at the Bhoys and is also the club captain.

Brown has revealed that he has no plans to leave the Scottish Premiership giants at the end of the season despite the managerial change that is going to happen in the summer.

“I’ve had opportunities to leave but I’d never leave unless I was forced to and that might happen one day,” the Scotsman told The Glasgow Evening Times.

“The new manager might come in and not like anybody and want to start all over again. Whatever happens, happens but I’ve still got two years left here and I’ll definitely see it out.”

Brown is one of the best central midfielders in Scotland, and him staying at Celtic is certainly good news for the Hoops.

The Bhoys will need a leader next season when they face competition from Old Firm rivals Rangers to win the Scottish Premiership title.

Any manager who comes in and replaces current boss Ronny Deila at the end of the season will know the importance of Brown inside the dressing room.
