Scott Brown’s new contract has been complete as he signs on a further two-year extension.

The Hoops released the statement on their official website. Many, however, are likely to come across the news through the club’s official Twitter page, which posted a fine tweet summarising the captain’s achievements.

This is great news for the club, who have had to endure a long-running saga with Brown.

Recent interest from Western Melbourne in Australia seemed to last forever. The Hoops captain mulled over the offer for a long time, but it was reported yesterday that he had turned down the deal to stay at Celtic. The official announcement, as always, provides supporters with relief.

Added to the interest from Australia, however, Brown also reportedly rejected an offer from Dubai. Al-Wasl were apparently keen on taking on the Celtic legend for £2million-per-year.

Terrific loyalty to Celtic

Fortunately, the Hoops number eight has shown tremendous loyalty to the club by committing his future to Paradise.

He also had a few words to say through the official Celtic website.

“Celtic has been such an important part of my life for a long time now, since I joined the club back in 2007, and this really is home for me.

“My focus, as always, will be on doing everything I can to deliver more success to this club in the months and year ahead. And in particular, for our wonderful fans, who have given me amazing support from the moment I first pulled on the Hoops.”

Brown will now be looking to add to his quite sensational trophy hall at Celtic. 17 domestic trophies combined with six Champions League group stage campaigns – he’s already done it all at the Hoops.

But once again, Brown has shown that money isn’t everything in football.

Since the winter break, the captain has looked back to normal. After a slight dip before the new year, all negative thoughts are now in the rear-view mirror.

Now, Celtic as a club can move on from the unwanted saga and look to drive towards the 10 with Brown at the front of the line.
