Celtic captain Scott Brown has revealed why he signed a two year deal with the Hoops.

The Hoops skipper disclosed that he wants to keep playing in games that matter.

He was concerned this wouldn’t happen if he moved to Australian side Western Melbourne, who were interested in signing him.

“They (Western Australia) were going to build a fan base so it’s pretty much starting from nothing and hoping you get up to 20,000 after a season” Brown revealed to the Herald.

“They might do that but it was going to be hard whereas at Celtic you’ve already got the history and I didn’t want to miss any of that.”

The history Brown refers to could mean the prospect of leading Celtic to their 10th title in a row.

That is something that will be appreciated by the Celtic support.

Brown’s comments show that he still has an appetite for success.

He isn’t the type of player who will coast as the result of a new contract.

He will look to drive Celtic on to even greater triumphs.

That is the sort of attitude the support loves to hear about.

Brown could easily have moved to Australia to enjoy the last few years of his career.

Obviously that is not for him though, and he wants to remain in the thick of things for Celtic.
