Celtic legend Scott Brown speaks after bagging first managerial role
Celtic icon Scott Brown has stated that he’s always had a desire to move into management after becoming the new Fleetwood Town boss.
Broony announced his retirement as a player last weekend and has already moved into his first-ever managerial role with the League One club.
Fleetwood announced the news this afternoon, with Brown moving down to English football for the first time ever in his career.
He’s been speaking to the official Fleetwood website, and it’s fair to say he’s excited ahead of his new role:
“I’m delighted to have been named Head Coach at Fleetwood Town, it’s a great opportunity at a really exciting club.
“I’ve always had a real desire to move into management and can’t wait to meet the players and staff and get started. The hard work starts now – I’m now looking forward to getting onto the grass.”
Scott Brown moves into first managerial role as Fleetwood Town provide big opportunity
Brilliant news for Scott to get his managerial career up and running after what’s been a disappointing last year or so for him at Aberdeen.
Brown was part of Stephen Glass’ backroom team in the Granite City as he took up the assistant manager’s job there with his former teammate. However, that all ended after Glass was sacked back in February. Brown would exit the club after the appointment of Jim Goodwin.
The truth is you can’t truly judge Brown on that role alone. He needs to be given the opportunity to be his own man. A chance for him to be the number 1 and to put his own stamp on a football club.
So much is still unknown about Scott Brown the manager despite a glittering playing career at Parkhead. So many questions are still to be answered about his style both on the pitch and off of it.
As of yet, there doesn’t appear to be any indication as to who he’ll be taking with him as part of his own backroom team at Fleetwood. That’s certainly going to be an interesting development in the coming days and weeks.
For now, however, we wish Scott all the very best in his new role. Step one on his road to one day becoming the Celtic boss? Stranger things have happened.
