Former Celtic captain Scott Brown could be offered a return to Parkhead, according to The Scottish Sun’s David Friel.
The Lowdown: Aberdeen exit
The 36-year-old left Parkhead last summer to join Aberdeen on a two-year player-coach deal. He was brought in alongside Stephen Glass, however, Glass was sacked by The Dons last month.
Brown initially stayed at Pittodrie but left the club on Tuesday to ‘focus on his coaching development’, which could take him back to Celtic Park.
The Latest: Late-night news
Friel shared a story on The Scottish Sun late on Tuesday evening, suggesting that Celtic would be willing to create a coaching pathway for Brown in Glasgow.
The midfielder hasn’t ruled out continuing his playing career but Friel has claimed there could be a role in the senior academy and B-team, while Celtic are also on the lookout for a new coach for their Under-18 side.
The Verdict: Interesting
Reports elsewhere have suggested there is potential for Brown to join former Hoops manager Neil Lennon after he recently took up the post at Omonia Nicosia in Cyprus.
However, a return to Glasgow less than 12 months after leaving would certainly be interesting. The ex-captain never worked under Ange Postecoglou, but you’d expect the manager will know all about Brown.
A move to work within the academy could be a shrewd one, but it seems as if Brown could have multiple playing and coaching offers on the table over the coming weeks.
