Scott Brown enjoyed a legendary run at Celtic and by the time he left, his arms must have tired from lifting one trophy after another. After a disappointing spell as player-coach at Aberdeen, Broony decided to retire from the game for good and has moved into management full-time since then.
Brown currently finds himself as the manager of Fleetwood Town. The Scot had a promising debut campaign with them, improving their position in the League One table when compared to the previous season and having a commendable run in the FA Cup.
With Brendan Rodgers returning to Celtic this summer for a second stint in the managerial hot seat, there were rumours of Brown making a return as well as part of the Northern Irishman’s backroom team. That is a move that would have pleased the supporters for sure.
Unfortunately, it does not look like it is going to happen any time soon. As reported by Fleetwood Town’s official website, Brown has signed a new two-year contract with the club, meaning he will stay on the Fylde Coast until 2025.
Brown announcement amid Celtic return rumours
Brown is certainly someone who has shown promise in his early days as manager. Now, it remains to be seen how his career in coaching goes.
Of course, there will always be rumours of him making a return to Celtic Park. The two just have too much history together for there not to be any links. Brown will have to prove himself as a manager if he wants to sit on the Parkhead hot seat someday though.
Currently, he is managing himself at the League One level. Thus, one has to wonder whether he would be willing to take a step back and become an assistant manager. But at the same time, working with someone like Rodgers would help his managerial career a lot.
