Celtic: Scott Brown set to join Aberdeen, agreement expected this week

Celtic: Scott Brown set to join Aberdeen, agreement expected this week - Celtic

Celtic legend Scott Brown is expected to leave the Hoops this summer, according to reports.

The Daily Record claim that the 35-year-old, who was offered a one-year extension at Parkhead, has decided to move to Pittodrie alongside his former Hibernian teammate Stephen Glass.

Glass was confirmed as Aberdeen’s new manager on Tuesday afternoon.

Brown’s agreement following Rangers draw

The report claims that Brown verbally agreed to join The Dons after talks with chairman Dave Cormack following Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Rangers on Sunday.

Brown, who has made over 600 appearances for the Hoops, played 88 minutes of the Glasgow Derby at Celtic Park.

A summer move is expected to be confirmed by Wednesday evening, with the Daily Record giving a 48-hour window when the story was released on Monday night.

Could Scott Brown become a good football manager?

Yes

Transfer Tavern take

The no-nonsense midfielder has been in and out of the side this season under former manager Neil Lennon, starting just 20 Scottish Premiership fixtures.

Brown has been an ever-present figure in green and white since joining in 2007, though, so his exit, to us, is a huge development at Celtic Park.

He’ll need replacing in the summer window, as his exit will leave the Hoops with Callum McGregor, Ismaila Soro and Nir Bitton as the club’s only senior defensive midfield options.

Brown’s exit could also have a major impact on the dressing room, and you’d expect vice-captain McGregor to take the armband on a full-time basis next season.
