Celtic icon Scott Brown is to hold talks with both Raith Rovers and Fleetwood Town this week over potentially taking his first ever managerial gig, the Courier reports.

Brown has been out of work since departing Aberdeen back in March. The Celtic legend then followed this up by announcing his retirement this week.

He’s been linked with both managerial vacancies at Raith and Fleetwood respectively. And whilst the Courier reports that neither club is at the stage of focusing on one individual, they are both keen to speak to Brown over the next few days.

The report states that Brown has been helping out John Hughes at Dunfermline’s training base on a voluntary basis in recent weeks.

But it looks as though he could be set to land a managerial role before the beginning of next season.

Brown has already had some coaching experience after being assistant boss to Stephen Glass at Aberdeen. The partnership didn’t last the season after Glass was sacked back in February.

Scott Brown set for first managerial gig as Celtic supporters watch closely

It’s difficult to put into words just how great it will be to see Brown in a managerial role of his own. It will also be intriguing to see who makes his backroom team too if he manages to bag either gig.

His time at Aberdeen was unfortunate. Poor recruitment with Glass ultimately led to the former Dons boss’ dismissal. Brown will have his own ideas and it’ll be exciting to see what style of football he wants his team to play.

Broony has plenty of experience to tap into. Not to mention he will undoubtedly have been watching the likes of Brendan Rodgers closely during his spell as Celtic boss to pick up any tips.

Next year looks like it’s going to be a big one for the former Celtic captain. A chance to finally make a name for himself in football management after hanging up the boots. You just know he would much rather be getting stuck right back into it as opposed to sitting on a punditry chair for the rest of his career.

Celtic fans will be watching on excitedly wherever he goes in the hope that Brown can one day work himself up to being the Hoops boss. That road will hopefully be underway this summer with either Raith or Fleetwood.

All the best to Scott wherever he ends up.
