Scott Brown has admitted that he is targetting silverware for Aberdeen after he swapped the Hoops of Celtic for the red of Aberdeen for the first time yesterday. The 35-year-old enjoyed fourteen successful years at Paradise and now, he is hoping to bring some of the midas touch to Pittodrie, where they only have a League Cup in 2014 to show for their resurgence in recent years.
Speaking to Red TV, Brown said that he wants to bring attacking football to the North East but most importantly, silverware.
“I will give 110% and I want what’s best for this club. I wouldn’t have come here if I didn’t believe that we can push to win things and Stephen’s exact same as well.
“The chairman is the exact same. We’ve got to see silverware coming up the road.
“I still want to play, I still think that I’ve got a lot to offer, especially to a young squad.
“I’m a winner, I’ve won a lot of trophies, I enjoy winning. I want to bring some of that success to this football club.
“I believe it’s a good time for me to go out and try something different and this is definitely something different, to play a part as a coach as well.”
Brown won a colosal 22 trophies with Celtic, captaining the side during the 9IAR run as well as to the Quadruple Treble. He is certainly a winner but hopefully he doesn’t enjoy too much silverware at Pittodrie. Brown joined up with former Hibs teammate Stephen Glass this summer after the Dons offered him a two-year playing/coaching role. Broony probably realised that he would be phased out by a new manager and likely wanted to continue playing regular football while setting himself up on the path to becoming a manager himself.
It will be utterly bizarre seeing back at Celtic Park next season in other colours. However, he was a great servant to the club and will receive a hero’s welcome until the kick-off.
