Celtic: Alex McLeish reacts to Scott Brown news

Celtic: Alex McLeish reacts to Scott Brown news -Celtic News

Pundit Alex McLeish has been reacting to rumours linking Scott Brown with a return to Celtic in a coaching role, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Brown news

Brown officially parted ways with Aberdeen earlier in the week, less than a year into his player-coach deal at Pittodrie.

It didn’t take long for news to surface over a possible Parkhead return, with The Scottish Sun claiming the Hoops would be willing to create a coaching pathway for their former captain.

There could be a role in the senior academy and B-team for Brown, while Celtic are also on the lookout for a new coach for their Under-18 side.

The Latest: McLeish reacts

McLeish, who contributes for BBC Radio 5 Live, was asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on the links regarding Brown.

This is what he had to say in reply, labelling it as a ‘great idea’ by the Hoops.

“If he feels the urge to hang up his boots, then it kind of smacks of common sense, Celtic giving him an opening.

“I think his desire is to become a coach and possibly a manager in the future. First, Scott has to retire.

“For Celtic, I’m sure it’s a great idea to bring one of the legends back to the club in a coaching capacity. If they’ve got the space, then why not?”

The Verdict: Hoops need to act fast

If Celtic want to bring Brown back to Glasgow, they may have to act fast, with Leicester City and former Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers already offering him a quick return to coaching in the Midlands.

Ange Postecoglou seemed open to the idea of the 36-year-old returning to Lennoxtown when talking on Thursday, however, it doesn’t look like Brown will be short of options. It could be one to keep an eye on over the coming weeks, as Brown looks “to focus on his coaching development”.
