Scott Brown has declared that he will no longer play professional football. The Celtic legend announced his retirement from playing earlier this week and is now totally focused on his new role as manager.
Brown, a member of Celtic’s Quadruple Treble-winning club, departed Celtic last season to play for Aberdeen this season.
However, upon Jim Goodwin’s hiring, he left Pittodrie due to his little coaching impact.
Brown, 36, has ruled out returning to football as a player after a few weeks and is instead “excited” about the beginning of a new chapter in management.
“It’s been a difficult decision to finish my playing career, but I’ll be 37 next month and I feel the moment is right for me to proclaim that I’m retiring in order to focus completely on becoming a manager,” Brown explained.
“It’s the conclusion of one chapter but the start of another, and I’m excited to see what the future brings.”
Brown was heavily associated with the St Mirren job after Goodwin departed for Aberdeen, but Stephen Robinson was picked in Paisley.
The former Celtic captain has already finished his coaching credentials and hopes to take over as manager.
“Obviously, I will cherish some amazing memories from my time at Celtic,” Brown said, “and none better than winning so many trophies during my time at Celtic.”
“So I’m ecstatic that the team is on the verge of recovering the championship.”
“I know how it feels to raise that prize and how much work it takes to get it.”
“I have to give Ange Postecoglou credit for the job he’s done in such a short period of time.”
“I hope the coach and the players enjoy every second.”
