Scott Brown kills off the Celtic rumour

Speculation that Scott Brown could become part of Brendan Rodgers’ backroom team has been killed off by the announcement from Fleetwood Town of a new two year contract for their gaffer.

The lower leagues in England are a notorious killing ground for managers with 21 changes during the last 12 months.

Without any prior experience of the English game and facing a marathon 46 match league programme Brown guided Fleetwood to 13th place in League One last season and an FA Cup last 16 appearance with QPR a casualty along the way.

The League One side seem to be very pleased with the direction that they are going in with a new deal announced at lunchtime today.

Brown told the Fleetwood website:

Iโ€™m glad to have got the deal over the line, itโ€™s been a brilliant first year in the job and canโ€™t wait for the new season to start.


Iโ€™ve been made to feel right at home by the Fleetwood staff, players, and fanbase so I just want to give everything I can to bring success to the town, hopefully starting with a win on Saturday.

With his storied playing career Brown is always going to be linked with Celtic but the more time that he spends away from the club the better for his development as a coach.

Discovering the reality of League One management at Fleetwood is priceless experience for the former Celtic skipper, if he delivers success in League One there are plenty of clubs near to Fleetwood that could be interested in giving Broony an opportunity at a higher level.
