Fans of Aberdeen have been left split after Celtic captain Scott Brown announced his pre-contract with the club.
The Celtic skipper has enjoyed a trophy-laden 14 years with the Hoops but now moves to Pittodrie on a two-year player-coach deal. It allows him to kickstart his coaching career while also prolonging his playing days until he’s at least 37.
Stephen Glass was appointed as Aberdeen manager earlier this week. He takes over from Derek McInnes after the 49-year-old spent eight years at the helm at Pittodrie and now new management is in.
Glass’ first move has been to sign up Brown, the Celtic captain a former teammate of Glass’ after playing days together at Hibs. But fans have been split on the imminent arrival of Brown, who is due to join the club from next season.
Great addition IMO. Experienced, a winner, knows the Scottish game and can only help the crop of young players the club have coming through. Will give 110% to the club. https://t.co/a491FSvT8g

Feels bizarre but he’s just one of those players that you absolutely hate if you’re against them, but you’d love them if they were in your team. A bit like Morelos, if he played for us we’d love him. Mon the shithouse Dons https://t.co/wMrGx0Zezc

Always said I hate him but he's the type of player we need. Can only be good for the development of our young midfield as well. https://t.co/TFv7OzFbwA

Genuinely don’t know what to say! I think I could accept him in a coaching role but not as player https://t.co/7AfP8F4t9c

Very mixed feelings. Got a feeling that the sheer boredom I've had with the club over the past couple of years is coming to an end though, so…..that's good at least! https://t.co/U9Nsc03qxR

Can get on board with this from a footballing point of view. And let's be fair, that's what this is all about, winning football games, so let's get behind it https://t.co/DjZhr0GWve
