The Celtic captain is set to join Aberdeen next season for two years to act as both a player and a coach. Brown is currently 35 and is one of the most decorated players in Scottish history.
Scott Brown has played in more than 600 games and has been with Celtic for 14 years, he seen the club win 10 league titles overall and helped the club win all four trebles. He also represented Scotland at international levels during his playing career.
As a player his introduction to the Dons is a massive development for the club but his coaching abilities are yet to be seen.
Rumours had been circulating for weeks about whether Brown would take this role with Aberdeen under the wing of Stephen Glass or at Celtic as an assistant manager with it being announced today that Scott Brown will in fact become a don.
Newly appointed Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass said:” The opportunity to bring a player of Scott’s calibre, a leader who has more European appearances for Celtic than any other player, is a huge coup for me and for Aberdeen.
“His experience will be invaluable on the pitch and he is someone who will help set the standards we expect at this club. A born competitor, with a strong appetite to win, his hands-on approach and desire to nurture will hugely benefit the development of the young, emerging talent we have here.
“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.
“He is excited about coming to Aberdeen and working with the current playing, and wider coaching and support staff already in place.
“I’ve no doubt he will be a success here.”
