“Playing for Celtic was probably the best time of my entire life” – Hoops legend on new career and reflects on Paradise

Scott Brown is one of the most iconic figures in Celtic’s history.

The best captain we have had since Billy McNeill, Broony captained us to our second nine in a row and an incredible Quadruple Treble.

He gave us great memories like ‘Doing the Broony’ the wee shimmy at Aberdeen and his legendary tussles and wind ups with wee Alfie in the Glasgow Derbies was just tremendous.

But now he has moved on into management, the former Celtic captain was speaking about his new career and how he still looks back fondly at his time in Paradise:

“I did have a couple of offers in Scotland.

“But I wanted a change of scenery and to put myself out of my comfort zone as well.

“It was a great opportunity. We have a fantastic training ground, we’ve got a new stadium with a great pitch. We are punching above our weight and it’s a fantastic place to start.

“Don’t get me wrong, I loved my time in the goldfish bowl. It was unbelievable. Playing for Celtic was probably the best time of my entire life. It was a fantastic experience, but that time is gone and I have to focus on Fleetwood.”

We all hope Broony’s time at Celtic is successful because who knows, one day he may return as the gaffer in the famous Paradise dugout.
