Scott Brown ‘will be relentless in my quest for success’ after the Celtic captain confirmed his pre-contract arrangement with Aberdeen.
The 35-year-old will leave Celtic after 14 years this summer and join Aberdeen on a two-year deal. He will take up a player-coach role that will see him prolong his playing career until he is at least 37.
It will also see the current Celtic captain become assistant to new Dons boss Stephen Glass. The 44-year-old was appointed manager this week after a spell as Atlanta United 2 boss this week, taking over from Derek McInnes in the Pittodrie hotseat.
Brown is keen to deliver success at Aberdeen: “There is no doubt I had a lot to deliberate when deciding my next steps, particularly after enjoying fourteen successful years at Celtic. However, the opportunity to join Aberdeen, a Club entering an exciting new period with my former team-mate Stephen now at the helm, was one I couldn’t pass up.
“Once this season concludes, I’m looking forward to joining Stephen, the playing and coaching staff and everyone at Aberdeen FC. I am totally committed to the challenge that lies ahead in meeting the ambitions of the Club and its fans.
“I still feel I have got a lot to give, not only on the pitch, but in a broader capacity as I embark on my coaching journey. I will be relentless in my quest for success for Aberdeen.”
