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.
