Scott Brown’s contract could be replaced by a new two-year one, as the midfielder is reportedly set to turn down a move to Australia.

According to the Daily Record, Brown has made his mind up on the offer. This comes after a long two-month spell of him weighing up what was best for him and his family.

The source states that Brown made his mind up on Tuesday morning. This came after yet another meeting with Chief Executive Peter Lawwell.

Of course, only yesterday, it was revealed that Brown had turned down another lucrative offer from Dubai. Al-Wasl were keen to take the Celtic captain, who reportedly rejected a contract worth £2m-per-year.

And now it looks like Brown could be staying at Parkhead to help Celtic launch their bid for 10-in-a-row.

The rejection of the contract from Al-Wasl gave plenty of fans reason to be optimistic. After all, Brown proved there and then that it wasn’t all about the money on offer. Despite the fact he could be earning life-changing money elsewhere, the Hoops captain is happy in Glasgow, and clearly no team can put a price on that.

Stuck by Brown all the way

Brendan Rodgers has also shown some real solidarity with Brown in recent times too. As well as continuously backing his captain throughout the saga, Rodgers has been selecting him too.

Since a short spell out of the side due to the performances of Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor, Brown is back in there. He’s now started the last five matches, and his place in the team once again looks secure.

It remains to be seen what the return of Tom Rogic does for the side, of course. Rogic is part of Celtic’s strongest XI, and one of Brown, McGregor, or Christie will likely be dropped for him.

But regardless of future team selections, Rodgers and Celtic fans should be delighted. Their captain is reportedly set to stay and sign an extended contract. Given the influence he has both on the pitch and in the dressing room, this could be a big decision in Celtic’s season.
