Scott Brown says he’s looking forward to his move to Aberdeen as his time with Celtic approaches its encore.

The 35-year-old played in the iconic Glasgow derby for the last time at the weekend but it ended terribly, Celtic losing 4-1 to Rangers. Nicknamed by many as Brown’s last dance, he now has two games to go before sealing a two-year player-coach switch to join former Hibs teammate and current Aberdeen manager Stephen Glass in the north-east.

While it was emotional to bow out of the fixture in which he is a legend on a sour note, Brown says it’s the right time to move north: “I’m sad to be going but it’s the right time for me. It’s a huge fixture, Rangers versus Celtic, and to be fair I’ve enjoyed them. I have had some great memories in them as well and some disappointing ones.

“From now on it’s about me going to Aberdeen next season and hopefully coming back and challenging as well. I’ve got two games left at Celtic and I need to make the most of them.”
