Whoever ends up replacing Scott Brown at Celtic will have to perform heroics to go close to emulating what the former Hoops skipper achieved during his 14 years at Parkhead.
Brown won 22 major trophies with the Glasgow giants, including 10 league titles, to help Celtic dominate Scottish football over the previous decade.
Would Strachan be a good backroom appointment for Celtic?
But after more than 600 appearances in the famous green and white, Brown announced at the end of last season that he’d finally be leaving the club and moving to Scottish Premiership rivals Aberdeen.
Brown will start his role at player-coach at Pittodrie next season, Celtic in the meantime are desperately looking to sign someone that can fill the void left by their legendary former captain.
And new Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou might turn to fellow Australian Aaron Mooy, who’s being lined up, according to reports in Australia, less than 12 months after he left the Premier League for the Chinese Super League.
Mooy impressed during his three seasons in England with both Huddersfield and Brighton but is currently playing for Shanghai Port in China.
We asked Steve Howey whether he’s good enough to be Brown’s replacement in Paradise, and he exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“They’re big boots to follow because he was such a stalwart for Celtic for such a long time, so if he gets anywhere near to what he achieved at the club then he would have done well.”
