Willie Miller believes Celtic captain Scott Brown will be a fantastic addition for Aberdeen.
Brown will bring the curtain down on his 14-year Celtic stint this summer when he joins former Hibs teammate Stephen Glass as a player-coach at Pittodrie. It’s Glass’ first move since becoming Dons manager.
Aberdeen legend Miller believes the Celtic captain will be great for the north-east outfit (BBC): “I think it is a really, really positive move. I think his role will predominantly be a playing role rather than a coaching one.
“From the coaching side, I think Stephen Glass will put a team around him that won’t insist on too much pressure being put on Scott Brown to actually allow him to focus on the playing side particularly in that first year.
“He brings a certain mentality to the dressing room that I think has possibly been missing: he brings that winning mentality. He’s got that stature of a player that the others will automatically respect.
“He’s got great international experience, fabulous experience at lifting trophies too but I don’t think Aberdeen will be expecting him to lift as many as he did at Celtic. But maybe the odd one would initially be the target. And if he could do that, then that in itself would be a success.
“Aberdeen fans will look for success immediately but with nine players out of contract, Stephen Glass needs to near enough put a team together between now and the start of next season.”
