Legendary former Celtic star Scott Brown will be leading Aberdeen forward as their new team captain, it was announced today.

Brown won an incredible amount of trophies as the leader in the Bhoys dressing room. He left Celtic Park to join Aberdeen in a player/coach capacity earlier this year.

Goalkeeper Joe Lewis continues as the Aberdeen club captain, but it’ll be Brown who leads the team out on matchdays.

Manager Stephen Glass told their official website: “I am pleased to announce that when we welcome fans back to Pittodrie on Thursday, Scott Brown will lead the team out as team captain.

“We are all happy to have him here and are looking forward to seeing the impact that his leadership, both on and off the park will bring to Aberdeen FC.

“I am certain the supporters will enjoy watching him represent our great Club, I know he is proud to have been given the honour of leading the team as captain. I can assure you all that the drive he has to continue his record of being a winner, now in the red of Aberdeen, will be evident immediately.

“It is also important to acknowledge the role that Joe Lewis has played as captain and will continue to play for us as Club captain.”

Aberdeen’s season kicks off competitively against BK Hacken in UEFA Conference League qualifying this Thursday.

It’ll be interesting to see how this is taken by supporters. Brown was hardly the most popular person at Pittodrie on Celtic visits north.

However, if he shows the same commitment for Aberdeen as he did for the Bhoys, it surely won’t be long before he wins them over.

Good luck in your new role Broony!
