Rodgers' new formula could end Brown's Celtic career

Scott Brown’s exit to the USA becomes more realistic as the weeks go on.

The Celtic captain has been linked with a transfer across the water in the last few months. Some will have laughed originally but Celtic’s new starting XI doesn’t allow space for the veteran.

Brown not a sub at this stage

At 33-years-old ‘Broony’ will be coming towards the end of his playing career.

Someone upstairs in the Parkhead money room will grow to realise that this can’t happen at a club like Celtic.

Brown himself will know that he needs to be playing consistently for his career and big wage packet. A move to the USA seems to sort out that problem right away.

As a player still with a lot to give, the former Scotland captain would walk into any team in the MLS.

America offers leader a new challenge

The two teams fighting for Brown’s signature are Sporting Kansas City and Minnesota United, as reported by The Scottish Sun.

At Kansas, Brown would be going into a winning team with the Wizards finishing top of the Western Conference.

However, Minnesota finished a much lower 10th place and offers a greater challenge. Brown could go over to a club like Minnesota with his experience and change their fortunes.

However, if he still has that drive to win trophies, a Kansas move would offer that.

The captain has won everything there is in Scotland but an MLS Cup would be the first trophy outside of the country.

With a young family, a move to the States would set him up and be a permanent base. At the end of the season Brown has a decision to make for his career and family.

Whatever happens, the Celtic fans will back him all the way – he is a captain, leader and legend.
