Celtic captain Scott Brown is set to leave the Scottish Champions after an illustrious 14-year stint at the club.
Brown announced on Thursday that he has signed a pre-contract with fellow Scottish side, Aberdeen.
Arguably one of Scottish football’s most decorated players, the 35-year-old will join the club this summer on a two-year deal in a player-coach role.
Reacting to the news, new Dons manager, Stephen Glass, described Brown as an invaluable addition to his side, adding that his experience “will help set the standards we expect at this club.”
“Scott will be a big part of my coaching team and whilst his impact will undoubtedly be felt on the pitch where I believe he still has much to give, I am looking forward to assisting his transition into coaching,” Glass added.
Speaking ahead of his new challenge, the Celtic legend admitted that the decision to join Aberdeen was not easy.
“There is no doubt I had a lot to deliberate when deciding my next steps, particularly after enjoying 14 successful years at Celtic,” he said.
Celtic might have been his home for over a decade, Brown has his eyes set in “joining Stephen, the playing and coaching staff and everyone at Aberdeen FC.”
He added, “I am totally committed to the challenge that lies ahead in meeting the ambitions of the club and its fans” and vowed to give is all on and off the pitch to ensure “in my quest for success for Aberdeen.”
The transfer brings to an end a 14-year stay at Parkhead which saw Brown play more than 600 games and win 22 trophies, including 10 Scottish Premiership titles. He has also played 55 times for Scotland. (Sky Sports)
